Rub it in Clive.. I don't even have a MK2 manual let alone a 2.5 to wave around as well
Yup Paddy just my luck. Fuse blew at about 6 at night so the local spares store round the corner was shut, so I shot to halfrauds, was in a rush so when I asked for I box of mini blade fuses, I took what they handed me as what I asked for n didn't think to check.
Got home, went to change the fuse only to find they was far from mini.
This was the beginning of a 2hour run around to 6 different garages n supermarkets, only to find that every one of em only sold blade fuses with not a mini in sight. Drove home in a rage.
To add insult to injury, the next day I popped down the local spares store, and the conversation went 'Have you got any 10amp mini blade fuses?' 'Of course sir, 2 for a pound' was in n out within 5 seconds with the fuse I needed.
Then to truly rub salt in the wounds, about a week after I was having a random mooch under me bonnet. Picked up the fuse box lid, to find that I had a spare fuse in me car the whole bloody time n never even needed to go halfrauds, the spares store or the 6 other places.
Thought I'd share my pain to give you a little giggle at my expense
