Remove solder from the pads

Tip : Be careful here. Don’t attempt this unless you have the right equipment. It’s quite easy to damage
the board. Don’t overheat the pads (about a second per pad is a safe maximum) or damage can easily
result. If in doubt get somebody with the right equipment to do it for you. It’s a 5 minute job so it
shouldn’t cost much.

Check that holes are clear

Hold the ECU up to the light and check that all the holes are clear. If any holes still have solder in them
do not try to clear them out using a drill bit! The boards are multi-layer and it is quite likely that an
internal connection will be damaged.
