Default Tweecer RT and the ECU

OK I got to my ECU today, but how in the hell do you uninstall it, I must of tried for about 45 minutes and all I could do was get it tilted, does the plug at the bottom come out? Do you just have to yank it out? What exactly?

Yea I undid the bracket bolt, and I saw the bolt on the bottom of the ECU, but it looked just like a bolt to hold on that black cap that holds all the wires up and on. So if I take off that bolt the bottome cartrage that plugs into the ECU will fall out and allow me to take out the ecu?
