the last seven digits of the vin is A337845

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

the procedure to remove the fuse box is:

first remove:
the entrace cover strip
footweel trim panel
lower instrument panel trim cover
cup holders
decorative dash trim
glove box
junction box

once all of this has been removed, you can then simply unscrew the fuse box and remove it.

I have also offered additional services you may be interested in.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
