The electronics box is the black plastic lump at the base of the screen on the left. There are a bunch of philips screws holding the lid on which are almost certainly seized in place if it's sat for that long, but worth a try. The TCU sits at the top and is not water-tight, unlike the ECU, so has a tendency to be the first in line for condensation damage. Its a bit of a pain to get to, but if you can remove the connector its worth looking for corrosion there first and giving it a spray of WD40. Sometimes that will help it, but sometimes there is internal corrosion too. Have a look for my General Vod workshop thread - I show the process in there. That one got scrapped for a blown gearbox whereas in fact it was just water-borne deposits on the TCU pcb. I cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush and let it try overnight and it worked perfectly

Btw, I sell replacement boot grommets here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153918842338
