anybody familiar with the female connectors used in the esprit fuse box?  don't know how to get one out and need to replace a few 

thanks,Rick1364174107_fusebox.jpg.79c8d86f207deee5a70afb1b216f458d.jpg

Bit of a dim photo but looks to be the Buss ( glass tube ) fuse holders? If so, perhaps more wise just to purchase new block from one of the suppliers?

Cheers

no not the glass tube, it's for the standard blade fuses 

I got one out.  1533697810_bladefuseholdersideview.jpg.19ce0bb5f568fdd3d63b7574a5c05459.jpg

Post pictures of the other side of the terminal, please.

Commonly, there are little locking tabs that hold the terminal into the plastic. On high-amperage circuits (fuel pump & cooling fans) the current draw could melt the plastic and then the terminals get pushed back when the fuses are fitted.

Or, the locking tab could be broken off/bent.

 

(Reminder to all owners, always support the wiring side when plugging in fuses or relays on Lotus cars...)🙄

 you can see the little lock pin, I made a very small screwdriver even smaller so it fits between the lock and the plastic so they can be pushed out.    

all I need to know now is what type connector this is so I can buy new ones.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Filip, they all look alike but are not the same,  maybe they fit anyway .  if I can't find the correct one I'll order some from rick's website they seem to be the ones that come close to the esprit ones
