    Hi guys, new to BMW's even though I have started with electrical mods here and there, ok hit a bit of a speed bump though

    while taking off the kickpanels for new speakers, i took off the lever for the bonnet/hood to come up, and just recently while working on electrics, i shorted out a fuse or two

    now the electric windows and the reading lights don't work

    simple case of replacing the fuse, only prob is, WHERE'S THE FUSEBOX?

    e36 1998 5 door 323i (2.5L)

    any suggestions guys? anything would help? would just hate it if it's in the BONNET/HOOD!

    if so then any ideas of getting in to that without the lever? lol think i need to get down to the scrappy in the new year

    maybe popping one of the front grills out and trying to do the latch? or if you can see any of the wire cable,get some plyers to it and pull?

    ooo muchos gracias

    found the lever thank GOD, put it all back in, now problem is i cant seem to find the location of the blown fuse, all of them (when i took them out) were in fine condition, now i am beginning to wonder if it may be a fuse that is not even IN one of the vacant spaces

    again its the windows (front) and the reading lights

    ok so here's the problem, as stated earlier it is not in the fusebox under the hood, is there an INTERIOR fusebox?
