Fuse box panel.. 147...arrrgh

Hi everyone.
Needed to change a fuse in my 2001 147.

Literally had to break the screw on the right hand side to take the cover off, (after all that the damned fuse still does not work even after replacing.. (cigarrette lighter)

Now I cant get it back on again....

I the screw (on the left) just goes around and around, without catching hold, and fastening.

Anyone else got problems with this cover..?

It'd not particularly well thought out, my old sierra had a better cover...

Anyway.. am feeling well pleased with the car as it sailed through the MOT yesterday with 'flying colours' according to the mechanic.

Hi Charlie,

Fortunantly, I never had a problem with any fuse. Even if the cover as to come out every 20k I can't remember if it's possible to catch the screw from the back of the place where it goes in. Maybe it might be possibel to fil the place with something that can catch and old the screw.

Congrats on the MOT.

Have you checked that the metal clip that
the screw screws into is still there?

They drop off real easy. If so you'll only
be screwing it into the "cardboard" of the dash.

There's actually a captive nut that usually sits inside the metal clip. Mine dropped down behind the pedals and I never found it so I have the same problem as you. But the panel doesn't fall down or rattle, so I don't worry about it too much....one day I will find a square nut that fits.
