Question Location of fuses 75 & 76

Howdy, could anyone tell me the location of fuse 75 & 76? From the fuse diagram, it should be within the vicinity of the glove compartment fuse box. But uuuh, I can't seem to find it...

There is a panel behind the glovebox; you need to drop the box to access it. It appears to be quite easy to do, since it's designed to provide access to the panel.

It took me a long time to find these fuses when I needed to change my aux fan fuse.

Here is what I did:

-Remove the glove box
-Get your head under the dash and look up.
-You will see a few fuses behind the glove box.
-F75 (red) & F76(yellow, I think) are beside each other
-There is a release to lower the fuses, but I couldn't figure it out.
-The fuses are about 1" x 1"

Good Luck!

- Don't remove the Glovebox, but rather Open the Glovebox.
- The Fuse Panels are held by 2 plastic tabs, untwist them to lower the fuse panel.
Piece of cake.

This comes up in a google search for location of Fuse F76, so, allow me to cross reference more efficiently for others to benefit:
