Hi there. If the screw is just spinning and not coming out, take a pry bar and put it under the fuse box and slightly apply a little pressure to the box and unscrew the screw. Then the screw should come out. If for some reason the screw will not come out, then you may have to use a drill and drill out the screw. If you need further assistance with your fuse box removal, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
