Open the engine hood. Locate the black box to the left of the engine. Open it, remove the broken fuse and insert a new one.

3 easy steps:

1) Pick up phone, call dealer and explain problem - if fuse is blown there is a fault.
2) Arrange a convenient time to take the car to the dealer.
3) Drive to the dealer and let them do everything - don't risk your warranty by tinkering with the car.

Fuses blow only when there's a fault. An 80 A fuse is guaranteed to NOT blow until 160 A flows (typically - it depends on the type of fuse) so why has your car pulled more than 160 A?

Agreed, get the fault that blew the fuse fixed.
