Question Which are the spare fuses on the fuse box?

Checking out the fuse box I can't tell which are the spares referred to in the manual. Anybody know where they are located? 335d

TIA

1) There should be a sheet on the back of the glove box piece you remove that tells you what they all are.

2) If its not used, its a spare.

I checked the insert with the fuse layout and there is no spares that I see on the chart. Wish I could figure this out.

according to the manual, the fuse box behind the glove box has spare fuses. I assumed it was the two fuses that are not marked on the chart. 1 yellow 20 amp and the other I can't read. Next to the fuse puller. I pulled the yellow 20 amp to replace the blown cigarette lighter fuse on number 8.

I THINK it's that top, horizontal row since I can't find them being used for anything else on the chart. Pull one and try. The worst that'll happen is something won't work and you put it back. Well...I suppose if you wind up pulling the ABS or ESC fuse worse can happen.

sAerodynamic: A spare fuse is a fuse that is spare. It's extra, not being used for anything else, and can be used to replace a blown fuse. The name is really pretty descriptive of it's purpose.

Kozmo: pinch the fat end of your key, with your index finger below the roundel, and pull. A metal blade-type key will come out and you can open your door to retrieve your diagram.

Then what is the relevance of saying your doors won't unlock?

I hope this is helpful. I saw this site (through a link on a recent forum post) regarding someone who had hard wired a radar detector to the fusebox behind the glove compartment. The linked page shows a picture of the fuse box. It also describes the fuse he bought at AutoZone (in case you can't find a spare).

Correct....

The Bentley Manual shows this and the purpose of all the fuses very clearly. I took a look at what spares I have.

There is one each of 5, 10, 7.5, 15, 20 and 30A fuses. I have 2 empty slots.

Well aware of that...notice my laughing about the post...only a recent owner of my car and actually did a search for my answer.

Still, no one attached anything for the person so I did - if not for this person, maybe the next one.
