I have a similar, but different problem. I opened up the internal fuse box ( the one inside the door) and lost one of the retaining Spring clips. I scoured eBay for similar ones, but couldn't find one. Anyone got any ideas where to get them?
It may not be lost (if you're referring to the fusebox located at one end of the dashboard), the metal clip that is friction-attached by small hooks to a plastic "leg" of the fusebox cover, may come loose during removal and fall into the "cavity" the floor of which is part of the under dash. Try removing the black under dash panel (usually 3 screws) and use a torch/flashlight to look for it at the lower part of the fusebox compartment (you will be looking at it from it's "backside').
A gentle tap with closed fist on the floor of the dash may cause the clip to dance around and be retrievable.
