help! replacing 100amp main fuse jdm s14

Hey guys, so i blew my main 100amp fuse in the engine bay... long story short i cant get it out. i have unscrewed the bolt closes to the guard on the casing of that part of the fuse box, destroyed the old fuse.. managed to get that part of the fuse which the bolt screws into but on the side which is closest to the engine bay i have destroyed the top of the leg and it will not come out. is there another bolt holding that side in? i cant seem to find one. any tips for getting the mangle connector/leg out?
please help me! thanks guys

You have to take that whole section of the fuse box out,there are two screws holding it in. One for the 2wires off the battery, another for one of the 59 red/white wires in the fuse box. Good luck!

I replaced mine (s14 USDM) in the middle of the freeway with a magnet and a small Phillips and a flahslight, the magnet was to make sure I didn't drop the bolts( and I had a friend bring me the extra 100fuse) took me about 10 mins because it was the first time I was doing that, no cutting involved, just the 2 bolts/screws

If you search around there is a write up with pics, but there are only 2 10mm/phillips screws involved. No cutting or soldering. I can take a pic if you need me to.

You just gotta pop the tabs holding the whole strip fuse holder in place pull it up, then you should be abel to see the 2 10mm bolts holding them in place. Pop the bolts off and the fuse will just slide out.

I shouldnt have to say this but I'll say it just in case: MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS DISCONNECTED!!!

Also, there is a good chance that it will pop again. If it does, start with inspecting your alternator. Either its bad or the power wire is grounding out to the casing since the plastic spacer/insulator is probably gone.
