There should be a part number embossed on the plastic box. If you can find a used one one with the same part number don't take for granted the pins are the same application.

So, I would push the connectors out of the replacement fuse box so you have empty holes and then one and one-by-one transfer the connectors from the burnt fuse box to the replacement fuse box.

If any of the connectors(s) are burnt beyond use on the damaged fuse box, use one of the connectors with enough pig tail from the donor fuse box to solder the wire(s) and then seal using shrink tube..

Did you fix the cause with the fan?

I replaced the fan, the resistor and the relay that it has so hopefully it dosent happen again. Im just having a really hard time finding a used fuse box and that plastic that is shown in the pic above from a 2009. There are a lot of 2008 and 2007 in salvage yards near me but im not sure that they'll work on my car.

I bookmarked a thread that had step by step pics and info to add relays to the high and low fan. I just checked and it has since been lost or no longer supported. credit to other forum member. good luck
