Is there a special tool available for removing relays? I tried pulling one out with my bare hands and succeeded only in lifting off the top of the plastic case.

Also, where could I get a good quality fuse puller? The plastic ones included in the fuse box are not very good.

i always just use a vicegrip to take em out...onhly done it a few times though. as for a fuse puller, in all of my fuse-blowing ive come to find that needle-nosed plyers are the best fuse-pulling tool.

Relays= big pliars to grasp the entire thing
Fuses = needle nose

On big fuses that are surrounded by other big fuses (example fuse #22 which is used for the DRLs on the 03s) I use a flat head screw driver to pry it up enough to get visegrips on to it.

for relays I just use my fingers and a very small flat head or a pick...

that plastic thing does suck but with enough practice you can use it almost as easily as a pair of needle nose pliars.. just my .02


BTW- I know this because a customer stole my only pair once and I refused to buy another because I was so damn confident that I still had them... lol that will show me to trust people with my tools

they actually do make a set of pliers for pulling relays, they look like v's on the end of a pair of plier handles, they work ok, but not good in tight spaces. i think ur local parts store should be able to get them if you want a pair.

if im lookin at a particular relay and cant get to it good, just pull one on the end and work your way towards it, i think its easier like that, just put them back the right way
