2016 Power Lift Gate ECU Location

My Rav appears to have the Power Lift Gate TSB issue, got my letter in the mail. I am planning on taking it in this weekend to have the ECU replaced by the dealer. Does anyone know where the ECU is located? If it is in the rear gate I would like to remove the panels myself as I have had issues with dealers removing panels incorrectly and causing rattling issues and broken parts in the past.
Any info is greatly appreciated
-Josh

2016 Power Lift Gate ECU Location

No idea where it is, but if I had to guess I would say inside of the lift gate. I've seen a couple of removable covers. The dealer fixed mine last week working good again. Good luck

Here's a part diagram, could be in the liftgate or under the rear deck behind the spare tire.

Not to shift the topic, but my jaw dropped at the price of the lift cylinders in that listing. Over $500 each......

At those prices, glad I lease! The parts prices are predatory.
