Just been to Halfords to get some 20amp mini fuses as my power outlet is dead. Its started raining now so can't fit them at the moment. Just wondering though, is it the engine compartment fuse box or the glove box one? (And if it is the glove box one how do I get access to it.

 

Fuse position 22 I think the hand book says.

 

 

 

Cheers

Take everything out of the glove box 1st and then push in from the outside where you can see a little lip on each side...the glove box will drop so you can see the fuse box.

I had the same problem, couldn't find the fuse! Turns out they changed the fuse location and many manuals (inc my Haynes) list/details the old position. As far as I can remember it will be one of the lower square fuses (blue?) I think

Yeah blue one in position 30 is only 20amp fuse in your box Paul, what does manual say number 30 is?

Ah right. I was thinking well this just doesn't match

Good point lol. Book says postion 30 is not used - So that confirms it.

 

I'll nip back to halfords and get one of those blue box types.

 

 

Thanks guys - just needed someone to point out the obvious to me -haha

Had the same issue and as it was under warranty it went back to ford who swore blind it was as the manual till I go them to swap the fuse and the cig lighter still didn't work..  They photographed it and circled it, Printouts in the car, I'll check it and report later...

I believe the change was the 60 Reg Plate (Titanium got Sony Stereo)

 

As R-head said it is one of the bottom blue ones, cannot remember which but you can tell it is blown when you remove it you will clearly see it.

 

Now the fun Part!

 

You will not find them at Halfords or any chain style store that I could find, Two places for me were the Ford Dealer who had to order them in, or a local auto shop but they only had 20 and I think it was a 30 I needed (or the other way round).

 

They are called Slow Burn or PAL type fuses and they cost about £3-5 each!
