Good afternoon. My name is Tom Brintzenhofe, certified master mechanic, from Redding, Pennsylvania, and today, I'm going to show you how to change a fuse, in an electrical fuse panel. Now, down in here, once you know what circuit is blown, it's real simple to get them out. You just need yourself a pair of pliers. I use a pair of terminal connector, crimping pliers. They work real nice, they won't smash, and they only close a certain amount, but a needle nosed pliers, even fuse pullers that are usually in the fuse box, will work. I like these, I rarely drop them with these, but once you get a hold of one of these, and you know which one it is, it's real simple, just hold onto it, pull it straight out, get yourself a new fuse, and it's just a reverse process. You just hold onto it, push it right back in. Try not to lose your spot, as to where you pulled it out at. Stick it back in there, push it in with your thumb. It will go in relatively, fairly easy. Fuses you can pick up at any parts store. They're only a couple of bucks, but once you get it in there, make sure you close your fuse panel here. You don't want to get water and moisture up in there, and cause corrosion, give you all sorts of other problems, but it's relatively that simple.
