Fuses are located in two locations:

  • in the cabin, on the drivers side footwell wall (above the drivers right knee)
  • in the engine bay, on the passenger side behind the battery (protected by a black plastic cover)

Under bonnet fuses

The engine bay fuse box contains both the common blade-type fuses, as well as some heavy-duty fuses rated from 30A to 150A. Although most of these pull straight out, the four large fuses on the left (drivers) side in the picture are bolted in, both from the front and back. This includes eg the 150A alternator fuse, which is typically damaged (along with other items) if someone attempts to jump-start the vehicle with power connected the wrong way.

To remove and replace eg the 150A alternator fuse:

  1. Disconnect the battery (to avoid further electrical issues, and also to free up access)
  2. Remove the cover of the fuse box using a large screwdriver (or a suitably sized coin)
  3. Gently fold the red plastic ‘shield’ so that the vertical bolt is exposed and can be removed
  4. Unclip the front row of fuses, thus providing access to the rear bolts
  5. Unscrew front and rear bolts to the applicable fuse(s)
  6. In principle, the fuses can now be pulled straight out
  7. However, the old plastic is brittle and the fuses may be stuck
  8. If so, release the pressure on the other bolts clamping the metal brackets
  9. If necessary, fully remove these bolts and remove the metal bracket
  10. The fuses can now be more easily pushed out from the bottom with minimal pressure
