How do I remove the ECU?

I'm sorry this must sound horribly simple, but I just cannot get that wire harness out the bottom of the ECU. I dropped the glove box and unhooked the ECU but can't get that harness out and don't want to destroy anything. I need to hook up my GlowShift to the tach wire (which I hear is pin #48). Any help would be much appreciated!

There is a bolt in the center of the plug that secures it to the ECU. The plug will come out as you turn the bolt. It is either 8mm or 10mm.
