This might be a silly question, but I'm really not sure how to get into this fuse box. Very grateful for advice.

The reason I want to get in there is that it says here Pure progressive performance | Polestar that there's a set of pliers in there. I've got an irritating rattle coming from that area that sounds like it could well be that the pliers have come loose and are jiggling around when driving at low speeds on the UK's bumpy roads.

There are a tiny set of plastic pliers for removing the fuses in the fuse box. They press fit into a little holder. Could be the issue but I think unlikely.

Thanks for your help guys. It turned out that the rattle was caused by one of the plastic fixings on the foam panel below the fusebox not anchoring tightly to the car, so whenever the foam panel moved even slightly, the plastic fixing made a really annoying rasping noise. For now, I've just removed that fixing altogether and the rattle has gone. I'm planning to ask my local service centre to fix it properly though.

Related question - how does one easily remove that foam piece located below the fuse box without completely removing the carpet, too? I tried just peeling back the carpet enough to get to the fuse box and could not get it back far enough to also get that foam brick out so I could access the grounding post. Perhaps I'm just too worried about breaking something? TIA!

It's tricky but you do just have to pull it back; on the centre console side, you can pull the mat down and out before pulling it back. It's not ideal but yes it's a matter of pulling relatively hard but trying not to pull out any of the plastic trim.
