How do you open the Power Distribution box on a 1998 Ford F-150?

    I presume there must be a lot of F-150 owners here, so I'm hoping someone can provide an answer. I've searched the web, including F-150 forums, and although the question had been asked by others before, I didn't see any real answers. I see a tab and an hinge, but I can't budge it. Since the box and cover are made of plastic, I'm reluctant to provide too much force with a screwdriver.

    Never mind. I got it open. I didn't want to pry with a screwdriver, but I did and it doesn't look like I broke anything. For anyone else who also has a problem opening this cover, there's a hinge on one side of this fuse-box cover and a lock tab on the other. It was hard to see in the closed position. The photo I took shows the tab's location with a pen pointing to it.
