I recently bought a GEM from a junk yard but found out I actually needed the entire fuse box. They told me that's something I'll need to pull myself. Problem is, I have no idea how to do that. Anyone able to walk me through it?

You should be able to see the keyless entry code without removing anything. Try using a small mirror to look for it.
