what you need to do is take your fuse box and on the back, clean all of the brass posts with a pencil eraser. once they are clean, you want to put a small pool of solder on each post (there are two posts for each fuse clip, one on each side). this helps the problem. however, i did it on mine and still had a problem, i'll be it not as bad. i finally solved the problem by taking out all of the fuses and cleaning each clip with a pencil eraser and steel wool. be very thorough and do as much of the clips as possible (including the side that doesn't touck the fuse). make sure to clean the box carefully when done (compressed air is a good idea) because you don't want any pieces of steel caught in the box. now, throw away all of your fuses and put new ones in every slot. this should solve your problem. i would recommend doing the cleaning before the soldering and checking to see if it worked. good luck

chris,
i think you might be right about just one side, it's been a while since i did mine and the car is in storage for the winter, so i can't look at it right now to see. try the cleaning thing first because it might fix the problem without having to solder of hammer (as suggested above). email me directly if you have any more questions at [email protected]. i know it's a pain to fix this problem as i went through it myself, so let me know if i can help.
