rear strut brace problem

my bro got me a strut braces for my 18th and we've managed to put on the front one easily but when it came to doing the back one the on board ECU was directly in the way and it appears that the bolts holding it in place are welded on. any ideas how to get around this?

Re: rear strut brace problem

If it's the rear upper strut bar that I'm thinking of, you'll need to cut away the lining in the trunk to get to the bolts, but it sounds like you already did this. As far as the bolts being welded on, they're not. Should be as easy as the front. Use a breaker bar to get them loose, and make sure you torque them down a little at a time, going around all 3 before one is all the way tight. If that makes sense.
