98 Computer

I need to find out my computer code for my guy to re-flash my superchip. All I can sem to find is that its "under the hood, passenger side, near top, in the firewall"
Is it covered? Is there something I need to move to see it? There is a small rectangular black plastic door that I would think is of a similar height and width, is this like a drawer that the computer sits in? Or am I totally missing this? Pics/diagrams would be helpful.

I do have a complete guide to my truck at home, but I have the chip with me, packed & ready, and I'd like to be able to swing by UPS on my way home. Thanks!

It's directly underneath the passenger side windsheild/water nozzle. Just a couple screws takes it out.

Top left corner, you'll see the wire harness going into a large conector. The conector is held on with one "bolt", unscrew it and the harness will unplug. Take off the two nuts on either side of of the black "cover". Remover this "cover". Then you will be able to pull out the computer. Its a silver box with the plug on the front. The code will be on the little door on the back. Hope this helps.
