Does anyone have a user manual for a 2005 Ford Ka Design?

 

If so could you tell me which fuses relate to the above? I have no manual unfortunately 

 

Any help warmly received. Bit of a novice  :(

There are 2 fuses that control the side lights on all cars, one for the left front and back side lights and the other for the right.

 

If your front side lights are working it's not a fuse problem, but a wiring fault, probably to do with the connectors in the boot that fasten to the rear lamp circuit boards which have a tendency to get corroded up with green gunge due to water ingress.

 

There are a couple of options if this is the case, first try cleaning them, (Best to do this with the battery disconnected) and then coating them in a thin film of Vaseline after they've been reassembled.

 

The other is to replace with new parts including the plugs, which will mean a lot of wire cutting and soldering

Cheers for your response matey

 

After posting originally i checked all the individual fuses and bulbs and they were all fine so i'd think you are right

 

Any ideas what this would cost in a garage?

Not a clue to be honest, as I tend to do this kind of job myself, it's simply a matter of sourcing the parts required, (Breakers yards are good for this) and cutting and splicing the replacements in
