Thanks for the question.

You will need to remove both big pin connectors from the back of the fuse box. There is a bolt in the middle of both connectors. Loosen both of the connectors from the fuse box, now you should be able to drop the fuse/gem module as an assembly. It is kind tight, but it does come out.

2 bolts on back in center? did that. Cables/connectors are removed how? One is loose, but does it come up straight (with the cover)?

Do you have both of these connectors off of the fuese box?

Do you have all the connectors on the side off also?

Thanks

the two where the center bolts were, how do they come off? They both have covers. There is only one connector on the side of gem module. Thats off, but the two with the ctr bolts.....cant get them off.

No the covers stay on. You pull straight up off the fuse box. Be sure that the bolts are all the way loose. You may have to wedge a small flat blade screwdriver to help pull the connectors off. They will come off, just need a little more umpf! You might want to wiggle a little while pulling.
