BMW X5 E70 crossover was produced in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. During this period, the E70 received one restyling. We will provide information about the sides of the relay and fuses of the BMW x5 e70 with a description of the circuits, as well as tell you which of them are responsible for the cigarette lighter.
Fuse box is located on the right side, at the feet of the front passenger. For access, we go down under the glove compartment and unscrew the three screws.
We remove the released cover. Raise our head and in the space that appears on top we find a green screw on the right side.
Unscrewing it – the fuse box will fall to the floor (go down).
It will look something like this.
