Default Little black box next to the airbox

There is a rectangular black box between the airbox and the fender. The manual picture to change the bulbs for the headlights don't have this box in the picture. The box is right behind the circular hole to get at the driver side bulbs. If anybody can tell me what the item is or if i need to take a pic of it to help.

Easy to move. There should be two plastic buckle clips on each side of the cover, underneath will be another black cover remove that as well. Inside is your computer VERY CAREFULLY move it, you don't want to damage it, well because of the obvious.

Ahh so thats what it is. The picture of how to change headlight bulbs didn't even have that in the picture. I just removed both headlight assemblies with the 2 10mm bolts like you have to do on the passenger side. Is the placement different in SSEi'* that normal bonnevilles cause I wouldn't think that they would forget the pcm tray was in the way and not tell you to remove it.
