the fuse link is bolted in from the two side in the fusebox.you have to un bolt the whole fusebox so you can raise it and if you look at the sides there are two side panels that can be moved down so you can get a socket or spanner on the two bolts apprx 10mm. undo them and raise the fuse out and put the new one in and tighten up the bolts again. hope this helps.

With all due respect, I strongly suggest that you purchase a repair manual for your vehicle, if you are going to work on your brakes, and have someone who is familiar with auto repair check over the work. Brakes are - well life savers. To describe the entire brake job, it would a full page worth of writing, and pictures are worth a thousand words, as it's said. The manual will have the pictures and a full description of the job.

The answer to your question largely depends upon the overall vehicle condition, how fat your wallet is and how much time you want or can spend on this.
Likely, you can search around and find a good similar used vehicle for what a used engine will cost you.
If you like your vehicle and really want to re-power it, you need to be careful what you buy. Years ago, just about anything would fit into anything and if it didn't it was easy to modify it so it would.Government regulations and constant changes to computer systems pretty much prevent that now, leaving you with limited choices, most of which will have similar miles and wear to yours.
Rebuilding an engine is not terribly complicated but you need to pay attention to details. Cylinder walls need to be re-finished, bearing clearances need to be exact and valves, cam(s) and all other items need to be wear free and pretty much perfect. Set-up is precision work and should not be done by anyone who does not have a clear understanding of what each component does, how it interacts with other parts and what it's limitations are. Special tools are needed (torque wrenches, dial indicators, valve and ring compressors etc). That said, a good rebuild that is done carefully will often outlast the original. Drawback is that parts, machine work and extra tools are expensive. A new engine moves around till the block takes a set. A good used block will not do this, therefore any machine work stays put and does not change after start up and use.
Last, before scraping your engine or car, find out if the problem is caused by bad piston rings, valves or head gasket/cyloinder head. If you find you have burned or unseated valves, you may want to just replace the head and gasket, not the entire engine. A good way to determine what is wrong with yours is to do a cylinder leakdown test. During that test, air escaping from the valve cover indicates bad rings. Air from exhaust is from bad exhaust valves, from intake, is due to bad intake valves.
This may help you to decide which way to go.
Bottom line is that the end decision is yours.

Testimonial: "Thanks for such a complete answer - more than I had hoped for; I appreciate the time it took to write it."
I'd look for a direct short, possibly a bare wire that has rubbed insulation off.
Start at the lamp socket first and any switch that might be located at the dome light itself, see if you see anything.
Next I'd check the door switches and then selector switch on the dash.
After that, it's going to be trracing wires, not an easy job.
