Fuse and Relay Box
- Last Updated: Sunday, 02 October 2016 13:27
Well, I have finally had it with the Manta fuse and relay panel, what with dodgy connections and spring loaded fuses, I just don't know how the car can be reliable anymore. If your fuse panel is anything like mine, then the copper fuse holder tangs have either corroded away, become very badly tarnished, or just plain bent out of shape.
The new fuse panel uses blade type fuses, so no more dodgy connections or spring loaded fuses, and the relays are as easy to get at as the fuses. The fuse and relay panel can be joined together to make a fuse/relay panel.
These parts can be purchased from www.vehicle-wiring-products.eu , the part numbers are as follows:-
|FBB16U||16 way Standard Blade Fuse box|
|RB4U||4 way Relay Box|
As you can see, I have finished fitting the new fuse/relay panel. It is bolted to the plastic panel above the driver's pedals, so that it drops down when the plastic panel is removed. The original fuse block cover does still fit.
