Front glovebox fusebox

Post by rm100 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 3:36 pm

I have tried to access front fusebox which is located behind the lower glovebox.
The manual shows two leavers to release the glovebox
So that you can access the fuses , cant seem to see the leveers as per diagram, any help?

Basically they are curved levers at the hinge point that do double duty as the slow open devices for the glove box. They are on the outside of the actual box between the box and the enclosure. You need to press down fairly hard on the levers at the closest point to the front of the car with the glove box fully open. The levers have a notch on their ends that is the stopper for the opening mechanism. It is this stopper you are to get below its stopper position. Relieve the pressure slightly from the fully open position, press on the levers, lower the glove box at the same time and hey presto.
