He is fitting a dash cam so no need to take it back unless he wants to pay the dealer to fit it for him.

Yes, sorry. It was a bit of a stupid comment.

To be fair when I first read about the fuse box I also figured there was some kind of fault on the vehicle too, we’re all busy people and it’s easily done my friend!  [HAHA] cheers

It might be worth ringing the dealer you brought it from to see if they can ask the question of their workshop where the fusebox actually is, its a fairly basic customer service question for them after all and some cars do have them hidden from obvious view (behind the glovebox being a common location for example, but access to that area isn't always obvious).

Looks like the forum could do with a MK4 section maybe @Mirez ?

Hi I used a spare fuse place number one ( it had got a switched feed) . Used a 20 fuse a small fuse rather than a micro fuse ( there are 3 sizes) as these go into the micro size holders . Hope that helps
