Just thought I'd share my experience with adding a fuse where the purple locking mechansim is located, specifically SC16. Last week I installed my third OEM wireless charger and while it still took about 4 hour to do, I managed to install the fuse again in OEM location. This time I got the purple locking tab out without breaking it. I also did not take any trim off to do the installation. As noted above, I just removed the three bolts from the fuse panel, unclicked the tabs, and slowly rotated the fuse panel using trim tools. After working at it for about an hour, I was able to use a hook pick to pry the purple tab out and zip tie to get the wire in. It is possible, just a pain the ass.

I’ve tried this and got the fuse panel tilted like you show but the pink upper fuse locking tab would not move. I gave it a nudge few times and it broke off so I gave up…I was trying to add a 7.5A fuse into F18 slot for reverse camera, I guess I’ll have to add a fuse tap instead. What is the purpose of the pink locking tab, it just pain in the ass to remove.
