Locating dashboard fuse box.

I'm looking for the dashboard fuse box and after snapping the lid of by accident I'm furious it's not there. Am I missing the point and its right there in front of me?
If its any help I have a t-jet 57 plate with red badges (factory fit not changed by previous owner). Click image for larger version

Re: Locating dashboard fuse box.

its actually in the golve box but the manual likes to tell you its next to the steering wheel because... well its fiat

In RHD models its next to the steering wheel and easy to get to

In LHD drive models you need to open the glove box, find the blue and me service USB port (you have a 57 t-jet so i would imagine you have B&M). undo the 10mm bolt with a socket wrench. Remove the USB port then you will see the fuse heads behind the USB port. Then use pliers to pull out the old fuses and to stick in the new ones.

I will tell you now its a nightmare!

Re: Locating dashboard fuse box.

Fairly easy to do but you need long nosed pliers to get the fuse out and back in

If you have shakey hands like me it's damn difficult to do also the fuse diagram in my manual looked like it was written in Latin

Re: Locating dashboard fuse box.

Cheers guys. I shall have a look this evening when I get home.
But on an unrelated note, any idea how to get my car up on car ramps. My bumper touches them before the wheels get to them? And ideas how not to destroy my bumper?Click image for larger version

Jack it up, put ramp under wheel, lower jack. Simples.

In glove box to left hand side behind black cover... (if cover is fitted)

As for ramps go get a scaffold board and cut it to2x 2ft lengths. And 2x 1foot lengths ish then drive the car into the boards then onto the ramps you might need a couple at 3ft if you still can't get it up the ramp

Where can I grab scaffold board from? B&Q? Screw fix? Homebase?
