Ok, I got the EBTCM out but I'm not seeing any wave springs. I also see some things that arent shown in the diagrams in the removal process. Here are some pics. Am I supposed to remove something else?

This is what I removed:

And this is what it came off of:

well since no one is replying even though I know a bunch of people have done this... I called module masters and they said you dont need wave springs and they dont even install them when they are replacing these. Also you dont need new torx screws unless your old ones are messed up. But they sell new screws for $5 And the module I have pictured above is exactly what you send in, no need to take anything else apart.

sorry for my delayed two cents but you are correct. No springs. Mine didn't have any. Module masters saved my ass on this one. I can't believe the dealer doesn't sell just the module!! They only sell the entire assembly. $900 for just the part I was told. It ended up costing me $230 with overnight shipping. It has been functioning like new ever since. Not that I have a reason to worry since it has a 5 year warrany.

Thanks for the response. Yeah, thank goodness they know their stuff about these modules. I was worried about those springs being gone but they made me feel better about it. And $200 with a 5 year warranty is awesome. I had to cut my dang radiator hose cause that sucker wouldn't release from the spout on the engine side. $20. Oops. And I was able to get to all 6 screws easily by angling the module up a little like one of the posts mentions. I used a ratchet with a torx bit which btw is a 20 on mine not a 15 like the post on here says. Just an FYI for anyone attempting it. I didnt remove the power steering pump hoses but I did remove the shackle and push the whole thing aside. Those 3 round electrical connectors unscrew to unhook them. Other than that stuff the walk through is right on. The red slider for the electrical connector on the EBTCM slides towards the drivers side fender from underneath the plug. and theres another plug on the bottom front of the EBTCM. Pretty easy but time consuming, knuckle scraping job.
