how to replace fusible links?

This problem is actually in my 2002 nissan frontier, but it looks like the fusebox is similar setup to the one in my 2000 altima, so figured someone in here might know a trick that would work to it.

So what happened is i didnt startup the truck for about 3 weeks or so, and the battery went dead. I jumped it and everything went smoothly but I must have had the jumper cables connected a little too long because it turns out one of the main fusible links in the engine compartment blew. The battery was charged, most accessories work, but the engine doesnt crank and the dash doesn't light.

I found the offending fusible link, and even tested it by putting in a peice of metal where the fuse broke and the car starts up just fine again.

Problem is I can't figure out how to get the darn thing out. It doesn't yank out like a normal fuse (this is one of the blocky 80amp fusible links).

I've done some search and it sounds like I might have to remove the fusebox to get to a screw thats on the bottom or sides, but I'm having some trouble doing this.

Anyone have any tips?
