    Need advice before I pull this out of fuse box

    I have been having issues with the dash gauges going in and out, I’ve done some research and I think it has to do with this in my IOD fuse slot. Is it safe to pull this and put a 10A fuse in its place? I’m afraid if I pull it, the fuse slot won’t accept the new fuse. I have attached a photo.
