Should it have a cover ?

156 1.8 . Small box near the battery which looks like it holds fuses ?? Should this have a cover on it ? . Mine aint & it looks like it needs one !!!

I dont know exactly what you would call it & I aint bothered to take a photo, so I dont expect much response !!!
Anyway, if anyone does know a) what it is & b) if it needs a cover, then I would appreciate your comments.

Make one out of an old ice cream container if you're worried. Make sure that if you seal it that it's completely dry, condensation could cause havoc.

Re: Should it have a cover ?

I think I know the one you mean - if it is the small black fusebox near the battery, then the answer is yes - it should have a cover.

The hinges are rather flimsy, and mine were broken during the last service, so it is hanging on for dear life (I expect to lose it the next time I take a speed bump at speed).

Re: Should it have a cover ?

Green Cloverleaf, you're right, my old steed (2.0TS) had all its fuses and relays in that area nicely wrapped up in covers.

ADYS156, I'd go for the low cost technical solution offered by GC or nip to the dealers and spend some cash
