Dash Fuse Box

So I read the manual and it says that the inside fuse box is on the right side of the radio area. Found it, but I can't seem to figure out how to get the panel off. I'm having problems with my doors locking and unlocking on their own, and when I open my car door the alarm goes off...so ideally I'd like to first, check the fuse, and possibly remove it to stop the alarm and automatic locking. As for the second part, if I remove the fuse altogether, will I still be able to manually lock the doors?

Thanks.

The panel covering it just snaps off. Like everything in these cars.
It's tight you have to pull kinda hard.
I thought i was going to break it the first time i took mine off.

Well on the front end there's like a black thing. Do I pull on both sides? I just don't want to break it off as I'm sure you understand.

So I got it off. Fuse was fine, but I took it out to stop the locks from having a mind of their own. Guess I'll just manually lock the doors now...

But now I realize its a bigger problem. Could be my wiring. Or should I try a new fuse? Do fuses "go bad" before they break? Really don't want to pay some technician $80 an hour to look for the problem...

are these aftermarket or factory locks? if aftermarket, then whoever installed them did a bad install, if factory take it to the dealer!
