Hi again Shawn, I have a few more ideas for you if you’re still having trouble.
There isn’t really any sort of “special” way to remove a fuse besides just pulling it straight out, though the type of fuse can sometimes make it more difficult than others. If you are still having trouble, you may wish to try using a flat blade screwdriver on at least one of the ends (if not both) to help pry it out.
Do the contacts have show any signs of an electrical flash, burn mark, or discoloration compared to other fuses in the area?
Depending on the source and extent of the damage, you may need a new fuse block entirely.
