Ok, so my 80amp MAIN fuse blew in the engine bay and for the life of me i can not remove it. I tryd everything and i couldn't get it out. Now the outside plastic case of the fuse is all broken up. My question, how do you replace the fuse? whats the fuse for? and what would cause it to blow?

edit: I just realized you have a tii, mine is n/a so it may be different



2 small bolts hold it in place. There are 2 small black plast flaps that cover the little bolts on the sides of the fuse block. These swing open (or permanently snap off) to allow you access to the little bolts.



I blew mine when changing the alternator belt, I touched something to something, made a big spark, blew the fuse. Not sure what I touched, but I should have removed the neg. battery cable first.
