Ok, so it's been bugging me recently.... I think i'm missing a panel that covers up the fuse box, underneath the drivers side dashboard. The passenger side has a panel fixed to the lower dashboard with Dzus fastners, which extends up the side of the dash, and i'm pretty sure the drivers side is meant to have one too.

Now, does anybody know what i'm talking about, and does anybody know what the part number is, or have a lead on a used one?

 

I checked the parts diagrams online, but cannot seem to find what i'm looking for.

 

Cheers,

 

Ben.

It took me 5 years to find them on the parts catalogue!

And no longer available new

I have a couple of used ones.. both the same side but I'll have to check which side

Not many had them fitted.. later higher spec mainly

Hi Gav,

Yes please, if you could have a look when you have chance.

It just seems like there should be something there to shield the fuses.

Who knows if my car is actually meant to have them, but i'd feel better if I had both sides.

 

Cheers,

Ben

OK will do

If it's got one side it should have the other!

Tell tale is the small holes in the edge of the dash with little wire clips in for the Dzus fasteners to go into

If the trims were not there from the factory there will not be any holes :0)

Well now I know.... the holes and wire clips are there so it must have been there once upon a time.

 

I feel special now for having 'higher spec'.....
