FICM Replacement

Need a new ficm and every shop I've called wants $150 to do it so I'll be doing the job myself.
I purchased a pre-programmed 48v ficm that should arrive soon.
However, I have no idea which tools I'm going to need for the job.
I watched videos, read guides, etc. until I couldn't read anymore, but none of them gave a list of tools needed.

Does anyone know where I can find, or can tell me a list of all of the tools I need as far as socket sizes, etc to complete the job?
It would be very much appreciated!

Re: FICM Replacement

8mm socket, slide the degas bottle out of the way, draining coolant is up to you. Remove front ficm bracket bolts, this bracket has two 8mm bolts that hold it into the air intake, and iirc, a 10mm bolt head on the lower bolts for it. The back bracket bolts I've seen 8mm and 10mm bolts. It's very basic tools needed for the job.
