  • Hello!
    It’s a nice work from you to help others !
    Please tell me where I find fuse for windshield washer pump on Renault Espace 4 2006 model ?
    Thank you

  • Please help me to find fuse for heating/aircon control displays on all four doors Please ? I have shorted out the power to o/s rear door control owing to a careless door pad removal ! lost power to all 4 displays ?

    • Glenn. Did you find out where the fuse is located? My displays are dark after the floor above the climate unit under the car was soaked with water. Fan now lives it own life starting and stopping even the unit inside the plastic cover under the car seems completely dry.
