Question Under Seat Fuse Box.. How to Unlock???

Purchased a 05 TB EXT about a month ago and I am so glad I found this site. Was parusing it prior to purchase and it is full of usefull info and help. Speaking of help I am a newb to this forum and the TB, so bare with me on this question. How in the blibbity bleep do you access (unlock) the underseat fuse panel in the EXT(assuming st is same type box) under the second row seat. I consider myself above average on the mech. inclined scale but these little unlock tabs have got me stumped. I see the nice molded unlock graphic on the top of the box, but it does not describe action and of course the owners manual says nothing on this topic. I spent about 5 min trying to open and would hate to be in a emergency situation and have to change some fuses and end up ripping the box out... all I want to do is a clean hookup for a ac inverter. Thanks in advance..... and again this site rocks.

there are holes in the outer cover where the latches below hold onto the cover. as long as all the cover is pulled off of all the latches it will just lift off. you may just be having an issue with one latch going back on as you try and pull out the other. try using a couple of screwdrivers.
hope this helps!

What I do is put my left hand under the forward facing side in the cutout while putting my right hand in the cutout on the drivers side. Pull out gently on the forward facing panel and then do the same on the outer (drivers) side one. Then, reach around to the passengers side and pull that one out as well. Lift it off toward the rear, and disengage the rear part and then lift the entire box off. Then, to get to the fuses, squeeze the clips at either end of the black panel (they are marked with arrows) and pull off the cover. The fuse diagram is on the cover of the entire thing (interior colormatched part).

Hope this helps!

Hmmm... thanks for the help but maybe there is a difference between the st fusebox setup and the one on the EXT from reply explanations above it sounds so. I have not got a chance to tinker with since advice but the fuse panel on this rig has two little black nipple shaped pieces towards the aft of the box. Looks like all other sides are not attached and once back end nipple retainers are open the panel top should come right off? Sorry did not think this would be such a tough one, what a way to start out my forum debut, not being able to open a fuse panel.. UGH

I dont think so, but my previous explanation was a little too complicated now that I look back.

I did it again just to see how I really did it. I pulled the back off first, then the front, and then the passengers side and removed it via the drivers side. Pull the sides out from the fuse box to disengage the nubs, and it comes right off!

BTW, Welcome to the site!

Well got the cover off.... The little black nipple devices on the aft of the box are the only thing holding plastic trim color lid on. They look like little plastic anchor bolts. Once the center is pulled out it releases pressure on inside and lets you pull out plastic piece. This is kind of a akward setup GM has, as I imagine there is no way of pulling the piece out w/o a pair of needle nose pliers?????

maybe it just needs to be loosened once, or maybe its just experience, but it is easier doing it after the first time. I can remove it with only my hands

the fuse block cover is different in the long wheelbase models. the cover is held in place by those 2 push-in retainers that you mentioned. I usually use a pair of side cutters to pull out the center of the retainers to release them.
