    Hi guys,
    I am trying to wire in a MID unit and need to locate Fuse carrier A46.
    My fuse box (glove compartment) only goes to 45,

    The 2 wires need to slot into plug-in station

    x10015/88
    x10015/50

    The instrustions for the wire install state the fuse box under the glovecompartment...

    I dont have a fuse diagram...
    Please Help?

    Looked at loads of posts from the US saying its slot A5 and 6...but even that makes no sense..

    Right, based on the info I have fuse 46 is in the boot behind the trim, could be either side, but the connectors at these fuse carriers are X10016 and x10018.
    Connector X10015 is at the fuse carriers in the glove compartment.
    Fuse 44 looks to be connected to X10015/88 and protects circuit for MID
    Fuse 25 connects to x10015/50 and protects circuit MID dash unit.

    Fuse 46 would appear to be spare.

    Hi gildersol,
    based on that, should I connect the following
    Branch Cable/Colour Plug in station Fuse connection
    A5 Violet/Brown x10015/88 Fuse 44(or to the wire if present already)
    A6 Red/Blue/yellow x10015/50 Fuse 25(or to the wire if present already)

    thnx

    Not sure what the A5, A6 relates to, but does this make sense with what you have

    RT/SW is red/black
    VI/BR is violet/brown
    WS/GR/GE is white/green/gray
    Gr/RT is green/red
    BR/SW is brown/black

    Yes, that looks right. A46 appears to be the name/tag for the fuse carrier unit, not the actual fuse no. and the fuses mentioned above are listed and shown on the wiring diagram I posted as being for the MID unit
