Hi there. The front control module is held in with a console cover that is snapped in place. Very careful, remove the center console with a small pick or screwdriver. The cover will pop out of the dash. Then the front control module is screwed into the cover. Remove the screws and the harness to the front control module.

Billing question sent to CS for the cost of the front control module repair.
