should be passenger side lower front
between the front wheel and front bar on the chassis

ie to the left of the passenger side wheel when looking at the car from that side!

just unplug and unbolt, re plug re bolt
then bleed brakes starting from drivers rear, passenger rear, driver front, passenger front

okay thanks but i think i explained myself wrong. When i was talking about the 'module' i was talking about the ecu part. The one you mentioned was the pump wasn't it? I dont know how the abs is all set out..just did the diagnostic and it says to replace the ecu.. (6 3)

The Haynes EF/EL manual states the ECU and modulator assy are all in one unit in the LHF wheel well. The Ellery EF/EL manual states the ECU is located above the steering column near the firewall, behind the cluster. That is the same location as on an EB2 and on an EB2 it's a black box with 'BENDIX" on it, held in by 2 screws or small bolts, also I think the connector is screwed on.
Can't clearly recall ATM, anyway look there first.
I had to remove my front seat and steering column to get one out [EB2], a smaller person may not have to.

The EF/EL Bosch units are combined as mentioned - there are two different variants - early EF & late EF/EL. Make sure you get the correct one, as the pipe fitment and electrical connectors are different.
