Yes there will be a sticker with a code on it. You will need to take it out to clean the contacts which requires unplugging the harness in the engine bay on the firewall.

Check out the first pic in this thread, you will see the wire harness going to the pcm with the 10mm bolt in the middle. quick help! Im retarted!

Pay no attention to the 2nd pic as the OP was confused on what was the pcm(the big silver box is the IDM)
