use needle nose pliers,. they work i had to pull out my horn relay i couldnt get it with my fingers, needle noses got it out in less than 15 seconds. If it doesnt look like its bolted or screwed down then its not.(i say that because i was in your shoes once)

Or you could use the fuse pulling tool if it's still under the lid of the fuse box. Looks like a plastic tweezers kinda.

Bolt

There's a bolt holding it in, I destroyed the original fuse trying to just yank it out. You gotta unbolt the fuse box and then the tray holding the bigger box fuses unclips from the rest of the fuse box. Then you gotta push the fuse box downwards while pulling up on the tray that holds the box fuses. Then you can undo the bolt and pull the fuse out. It's kinda hard cuz there's not a lot of slack in the harness for you to pull the tray up and push the fuse box down since the harness is tied to the rest of the fuses in the fuse box.
