120 Amp Main Fuse

Hi - Has anyone ever removed/replaced the 120 amp main fuse under the hood. The fuse has a bolt/pin holding in place and I think the fuse boxe needs to be taken apart to remove the fuse?

Thx,
Bob

it is bolted into the fuse box which will have to be removed and the bottom cover taken off to get to the bolts that connect it

120amp Alternator fuse

The 120 amp fuse has long prongs with circular holes in them, two small hex bolts go side to side through the casing into the prongs. The only way to see the bolts is to lift up the entire plastic grid that all the other sockets go into. The grid snaps on/off the main housing which lies underneath. There are 4 plastic tabs that need to be pushed inward with a flathead screwdriver in order for the grid to be lifted. I do not own a Solera, but it is quite possible another fuse is housed next to one of the bolts, with it's own separate small plastic housing. It likely can be slid down and removed, so you can access the bolt. On my vehicle the bolts that hold the 120 amp fuse, are different sizes. The one on the right is slightly larger and can be removed with an 8mm hex socket with a 3" extension on the handle. The left hex bolt slightly smaller and is attached to some small wires (to the alternator) and a smaller 7mm socket is used.
