Can anyone tell me how to drop the fusebox is it just the two small bolts at the top or the two lugs at the side as well? That seem to be secured with a serrated type washer?

Many thanks Steve. confused

There's a large metal thumb tab on the end of it, pull it down to unlatch it and it will swing down.

If it gets stuck it's probably the loom on the rhs of it catching on the side of it. Feel up there and ease the loom free rather than yanking and damaging it



Thanks again, Photobucket...

Pop the drivers seat out (10 minutes minimum effort)- four allen bolts and disconnect the cable underneath - then you can get a really good look under there

You don't need to take the seat out, just lie backwards with your head down in the footwell. You can drop it by removing those bolts at the hinge, with the star washers, or maybe by removing those other ones... try it and see, what's the worst that can happen? smile
