Hi Preee (or anyone else)

  1. Out of curiosity, where did you stash the fuse holder with the fuse. Did you stash it behind the radio?
  2. If the fuse would happen to blow, would this mean that you would have to remove some panels etc.
  3. Is the main idea of the fuse to act as a safety net, in case there is a spillage that would cause a electrical short?

Yes just a safety net , but regarding spillage after i drilled the holes and fitted the led's i used clear sealant to fill the holes from the front so the led's are protected.

i fitted the fuse , so it lines up under the gear lever surround , so if it did blow i can get to it easily just by popping up the surround with my finger nails.

Better safe than sorry. It does make sense.

I couldn't find any 3 amp ones on ebay. I could look around locally but I'm not aware of any good electrical shops in my area (closest one I could think of is probably B&Q).

The lowest amp that I could find was http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4160a7a713 which is actually good deal by looking at it.

  1. Would this be any good?
  2. For future general knowledge as well I gotta ask this question. If any fuse holder is sold for specific amp, does this mean that they genuinely take only certain fuse (i.e. you simply can not chuck in 3 amp fuse into 5 amp holder.

Sorry I'm still finding my way in any modding.

Thanks, thats good to know.

Am I OK to go with the 5 amps for this mod or should really go lower just to be safe?

5amp should be fine , if you can't find a 3amp fuse , you can always use a different fuse holder and go as low as you want.

Better to be safe than sorry. I bought 5 x 3amp for a £1 from ebay. I think it's a steal :)

Hello everyone!

Sorry to bring this back up after such a long time.

I've looked for fuse holders but I have no idea what it's supposed to be :-P

Could anyone post a link to what I actually need?

Much love!

inline fuseholder is the best variety. This is basically the same shape as the holder that supports your Festoon bulbs in your map lights / interior lights / number plate

A fuse should always go into the live side of a circuit in case of short circuits.

Live to orange/white, earth to black/white.
