Fuse box installation help

Greetings everyone, new to the forum and to the Rebel world...just got a '87 from a friend last night! There is an issue with the fuse box and needs to be replaced, I intend on installing a new one myself but I'm having a difficult time finding a tutorial or video online on how to do so. Is this something that can be easily done at home or should I take it to a shop?

It should be easy to do your self.

One bolt holds it on and it plugs in under the seat.

I don't have a tutorial on it but I have some generic photos of the areas in question.
My under seat area is crowded with my modifications, but I have a pic of an unmodified under seat area.





The fuse box is on the right side under that little plastic triangular cover.

I found the Fuse box and they were all good, could it be the Horn button is damaged?

Possibly. More likely, the switch needs to be cleaned and relubed. there's a how-to on the procedure stickied in the Wrenching section of the forum. One member suggested working in a large plastic bag so you don't lose the springs and other parts. they have a tendency to fly off once the cover is removed.

Dielectric grease will help keep the electrical contacts from corroding as well as providing some lubrication.
