    Hi,

    My heater blower has stopped working for some reason, my first port of call was to locate the related fuse.

    Therefore I dived in the glove compartment and dropped the fuse holder rack only to find that the fuses only go up to number 46?? The pull-out card from the rack clearly shows fuses 1 to 46 and then a seperate bank of 2 (fuses 75 & 76). But they are no where to be seen behind the glove compartment.

    I checked the fuses in the boot, but as expected they are nothing to do with the heater blower.

    Am I looking for something which does not exist? or are fuses 75 & 76 located somewhere else in the car?

    All other equipment is working fine and lighting up as it should.

    Can someone give me some clues please

    Thanks

    Thanks for the link Ronnie, although I must admit it does help a bit by telling me that fuse 76 is under the dash but no further clues than that and the attachments to one of the replies does not really help identify the fuse location

    Sorry if I'm being a bit dim on this one but I'm baffled as to where to start looking other than the places I've already checked

    Further location directions would be much appreciated.

    The fuse is way up there and a bit of a fiddle to see and check. Small hands and bright torch very handy. Unfortunately I think that once you do check the fuse, you'll find it OK and it will be the hedgehog that needs replaced.
