Mounting Fuse Panel and mounting plate

It is recommended that the firewall support bolts be replaced one at a time as follows:1. Mount fuse box to plate, as shown in DETAIL A. Using either holes X or Z, install

bolts D through the mounting holes on fuse box and plate (It is best to use a 1/4” drive, 6 point deep well secket and extension to tighten these bolts).

2. On upper bolt of fuse box, install lock nut "E", as shown in DETAIL B & G.3. On lower bolt of fuse box, install washer "G" and rubber support "H", as shown in DETAIL B & G.4. Remove the upper driver side firewall support bolts (2) from the firewall, as shown in DETAIL C.5. Install bolt "A" into the existing firewall support bolt holes, as shown in DETAIL C, G & H.6. Install 1 flat washer "C" on each bolt, as shown in DETAIL G & H.7. Install 2 standard nuts "B" on each bolt, as shown in DETAIL G & H.8. Install 1 flat washer "C" on each bolt, as shown in DETAIL G.9. Install mounting plate assembly, as shown in DETAIL G.10. Install flat washer "C" on each bolt, and secure with lock nut "F", as shown in DETAIL G.

From the opposite end of connector,insert a thin, filed down screwdriver into the cavity to collapse the locking tang. Gently pull wire from behind and the terminalwill release.To re-install, simply pull the locking tab up into position and insert the terminal in the new connector.
