OK so for starters you need to locate your ECU, simple on some vehicles a little bit more trick on others if you are not sure what you are looking for as there can be some many (such as P38's :-)
Note before removing any ECU, ensure the keys are removed from the ignition, then disconnect the negative terminal on the cars battery. When reconnecting the battery ensure that the keys are out of the car as many modern alarm systems will lock there doors as soon as the battery is connected.
The P38 Range Rover 1994 - 1999
Located in the engine bay, behind the right hand headlight there is a large plastic cover over the battery. Behind the battery you will see the main wiring loom disappear into another black plastic container with a lid held down by two phillips screws. The Sagem ECU is located in here, remove the two phillips screws then remove the three multi plug connectors.

Although we have supplied many ECU chips for these we have never needed to ask a customer where his ECU is :-) We believe it would be inside the car under the dashboard however please let us know if we are incorrect.
