What's this unit?

Please could someone tell me what this unit is? It is under the glovebox in the passenger footwell of the 156 2.4 JTD 53 plate.

The screw looks like an Allen head but not quite sure since I didn't have my reading glasses with me

I'm not sure but if it's not causing any problems, I would leave it alone.

Remember that old adage - if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Re: What's this unit?

Hmm I have just totally stripped a 156 for a race car and that wasnt on mine! Mine was a 2.0ts so perhaps there is another control module or something under there specific to the td cars? or perhaps for some of the safty stuff like stability control? Not sure if yours has that but the 2000 x reg one ive done hasnt.

Thanks David C.

Comokid I wasn't thinking of ripping into it - just curious as to what it is.

Black box fitted by the CIA. Records every time you go over the speed limit. In twelve months they will hit you with 150 speeding tickets and you will be banned. Forever.
