Open the glovebox and it is behind a plastic panel with 2 twist screws.

It’s not just behind the little door in the glove box…, its way behind the little door in the glove box.

My hand could barley fit through the opening, which blocked my view of the fuse panel.

Unless you have a small child who can take directions well, or a long pair of needle nose pliers…, good luck changing a fuse.

No kidding...

The "plastic grabber" would not reach the fuses, because my hand was stuck in the opening. I dont know why BMW just did'nt put the fuse panel under the hood, to me it's like performing surgery to change a fuse.

True. BMW even calls the grabber "forceps"!

Need some help with my fuse guys, so I have to dig this thread up. My lights in my glove box and trunk were out last night and I would like to identify the fuse for them. I did read the little diagram in the back of the panel but I could not understand which one is which. I tried both fuse #5 and #28 and none of them are the ones I am looking for (#5 actually shut down all the interior lighting FYI). If someone knows which one it is, please let me know so I don't need to ask the dealership about it. I am testing out some LEDs and would like to keep my CAs out of this....

BTW, I know this is an old topic, but it saved me. I my case the fuse that was blown was fuse 57. This is a small blue fuse rated for 15 amps that is 2nd from the left on the bottom row. Thanks for the help guys.
