Battery Terminal Fuse Problem

One of the fuses that connect to the positive side of the battery terminal is burned out and I don't know what it is called so I can replace it. I'm stationed in Germany but I need to know what it's called so I can order it if that's possible. It's connected to the positive battery cable and it sits on top of the battery when the cable is connected. I believe it is a 30A fuse but it doesn't look like you can replace the fuse individually. You have to replace the whole plastic piece because the fuses are actually part of the connector. Anyone, I would appreciate whatever help I can get on replacing this part.

haven't really look at the terminal so not sure if it's possible but maybe a quick fix might be to wire in a fuse holder?

I'll be able to tell you with in 5 seconds of seeing the picture what fuse you have. And 'd bet if someone else see's it first they will prolly know also

Here's a picture...I had to stick a piece of metal to bridge the gap where the fuse burned so i could still drive my truck. If i was in America it wouldn't be an issue to get it fixed but it's a pain in the *** in Germany. Thanks for the help though.

It blew for a reason and hope you don't melt your wiring harness now. Why is there a melted spot on top of the battery cap? Maybe that caused it to happen.

No, the fuse blew because I was being a good citizen and helped someone jump their car and they touched the positive and negative cables together when they went to hook it up to their car.

I admire those who help others. Now that being said it shouldn't cause you a loss by being nice.

Did the picture help? I looked at the link for the fusible link and it wasn't the right part. it's that whole plastic braket that attaches to the terminal. The fuse can't be replaced because it is molded into the plastic so you actually have to replace the whole thing.
