1991 Camry: shorted..80 amp fusible link while changing the altenator

This answer was rated:

I have a 1991 Camry. I shorted out the 80 amp fusible link while changing the altenator. the 40a and the 30a fusible links pulled out with fingers. the 80a does not. i busted it trying to get it out. how do i repair this?

Pavlin Koev :

Hi and Welcome to Just Answer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help.

Pavlin Koev :

any fuse or fusible link 80A and up is mounted by screws

Pavlin Koev :

examine fuse box where located,

Pavlin Koev :

look to the side some screw are located sideways, you will have to remove them in order to pull out fusible link

Customer:

i have the breakdown manual for this car. it makes no mention of screws to remove the fusible link. I will quote the manual: "Unplug the fusible link and replace it with a new one."

Customer:

i will have togo to the garage and look for screws, but i don`t recall seeing any.

Pavlin Koev :

it does not say in any manual

Pavlin Koev :

but that how it is mounted

Customer:

there are 3 fusible links side by side. the 2 outside ones pulled out by hand. the one in the middle did not. it broke apart when i tried to remove it. i don`t see how i can put a new one back in.

Customer:

i will go have a quick look.

Pavlin Koev :

okay, look to the sides

Pavlin Koev :

and under

Customer:

ok. they are under a plastic cover. i have a parts car here so i will switch it out if this is the correct procedure. how do i get back to you if it doesn`t work?

Pavlin Koev :

just reply

Pavlin Koev :

Customer:

ok. it will take me awhile to do this. i`m in the dark now.

Pavlin Koev :

it is okay
