Useful to anyone?

Post by MisterH » Fri Mar 22, 2019 9:59 pm

Found this diagram in the fuse box next to the steering wheel the other week. No idea how rare it is, but just thought there may be someone somewhere to whom this is a lifesaver.

Hope this helps someone!

If it comes from a scrap car, you'll need to provide the exact VIN or at least the model year, because the fuse box underwent a number of changes.
If if is in your car, I would keep it. It should be glued to the lid, but the one in my car has come loose, too.

Ah, I see what you mean now, the picture should be a life saver to anyone who got stuck in the search for a blown fuse. :)

Then I should repeat that the fuse box configuration is dependent on the VIN number. At least two completely different fuse configurations are known to exist, and I'm sure there have been other subtle changes during the 480 production.
