Yes.

You'll need to pull your instrument nacelle (speedo, tach etc.) and it's always a good preventative measure to pull the main fuse before you go unplugging or plugging wires and connectors. You'll thank us later.

and if you have a siren installed, don't just go pulling the fuse. even if you don't, it's still a good idea to disarm your security first. with fob in hand, turn your ignition on, let the security disable, and then turn off your ignition. now, you've got about 3 seconds to pull your maxi fuse before the alarm enables again.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Yes. 50A fuse under the left side cover. Red in color. You can't miss it.

Per the service manual, turn the ignition to on, remove main fuse, turn ignition to off. Commence work!

Didn't even think to pull the fusewhen I swapped mine out. Guess I got lucky.
