Question Melted fuse! Can't get it out

I noticed a melted fuse in fuse 41, one of the fuses for the aux fan. It basically melted the plastic off the fuse down into the holes and left the 2 metal bars of the fuse sticking up. I've pretty much destroyed the fuse trying to get it out, one of the metal prongs came out leaving only plastic in one of the holes. HTF do I get it out!?!?

Heh, you don't think I tried? Now all that's left is a little stub buried in the holes of the fuse box, and one on side, where the metal of the fuse came out, it's all plastic :|

you can release the entire connector from the fuse box, and pull it out that way, i'd probably take the fusebox off at this point (you dont have to disconnect everything though), but take a look, odds are you could've melted something else.

How do you release the connector?
