Replacing frunk fusebox

Is there a writeup on how to remove the fusebox from the frunk and swap it out with a new one? I have a replacement but the wires were just cut. I was in an accident and my current fusebox shell was crushed and can't figure out how to remove the wires

There are clips and bolts holding in quite a few parts in this box. The main fuses are bolted in place and the 2 halves of the box are clipped together.

Thanks for the reply! I was able to get 3 of the 5 clips out for the bottom shell; is there a trick to unhooking them? I'm still trying to get the last 2 out but they're getting pretty chewed up from my flathead screwdriver and don't seem to want to budge. And after I remove the bottom half, how would I go about removing the wires and inserting the new wires? Is there a tool I need or do they just pull out/push in?

They should all come out the same way but as they are orientated in different directions they can be hard to unclip. It's been a while since I had done that to replace my 120AMP fuse after I left the battery connected and the alternator wire off and unprotected.
