Blower Motor Relay - how to access this under the fuse box??

Post by sanfelice » Tue Oct 02, 2018 8:51 am

Can anyone tell me how the fuse box lifts up and whether or not the relay is something that just pulls straight out ?

Thanks.

There are two levels of relays on the 1999 2000 models - some are accessible under the flip cover (no tools) and then a bunch more under the layer after you remove some Torx screws.

I think all the relays just pull up firmly to come out.

There is a lower level. The front of box slides up, the + terminal nut has to be unscrewed. There are tabs around perimeter of the top layer you push away from the edges they clip over, and then lift the top up.
Disconnect battery before doing all of this.

Thanks, I did try exactly this, but there must be a special tool to do it It is nigh impossible to do it with just screwdrivers and plastic wedges.
