I need to access power from the fuse box, there's a 8mm nut I removed, but I still can't get the fuse box to budge, I want to run a wire through the firewall to my dash, for a switch, is there something I'm missing?
Be very gentle... all those wires tied into the box and the years will make for some stiffness encountered when trying to move it. Also, there are some little clips toward the bottom of the panel that slide over the sheet metal towards the interior of the engine compartment that serve to help hold the panel in place...
Ok, it wasn't to difficult to pop it in (towards the kick-panel), so I did what I had to do.
The biggest headache of it all was pulling/putting it back in, had to use the two knobs that close up the fuse box cover to help guide it in, but its definately a "take your time" kind of thing, you dont want to break any of the plastic pieces, or break the screw that holds the fuse box in place. Its really just pressured in place.
