" Moving the Fuse Box

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for the guide, it is excellent. However, I am having a problem and judging by the lack of comments regarding it, this problem may be unique to me. I have gotten to the step where the fuse box needs to be moved and I have spent the last hour trying to move it with no success. I have cut the tape and the zip tie off the wires, removed all the fuses and relays and released the clips on the sides of the box. Still no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions? Am I missing something? I have searched the web for answers and haven't had any luck yet. I appreciate any help you could give me.

" My fuse box only had two clips on either side and it was snug in place because of the stiff wires but it should just slide out. "

Also^, There will be a little 8mm bolt right next to the brake/clutch resivor that you will need to take out to get the fuse box to un-clip from it's bracket.

That PDF pretty much shows you exactly how to do it.
