What I found about the fuse box cover not closing properly/securely:

If you slide the cover's hinges all the way into the boxe's hinges the cover
does not latch properly. This is how I got the contamination in there. If
after you slide the cover's hinges in all the way, then slide the cover's
hinges back out just a hair (a calibrated metric hair of course :) and then
attempt to latch the cover it will latch completely and securely and seal
properly. Unfortunately I discovered this little trick only after the
contamination entered.   :(

A quick word on the contamination, it is minimal, the cover was closed but
not sealed for only a few days. There is no sign of solids, sand, dirt,
particles, etc, only trace evidence of dried road chemical that must have
entered while in solution is in evidence.

Thanks for all the suggestions on neutralization options!
