  • Megane 3 engine comp’mt fuse 22 a/c clutch circuit , how to access this fuse. As after removing the top cover the fuse box under appears inverted. The fuses are underneath and cannot be accessed. Please advise anyone next step to access fuses to check continuity. Do I need to loosen the wiring loom to rotate the fuse box to face up ?

    • Yes. I disconnected all and checked everything.

      Not so hard to do with a flatt screwdriver.

      But most stupid box ever i know.

      I struggling to get the turn light to work.
      Blinkers blink both sides.
      Do you think this is a box on the front lamp itself that is destroyed?
      Fuses is ok so next must be maybe a stwitch on the steering collum that is broke or something. If it works on the same as the blinkers it should work but.

      Maybe someone has taken away the program by ODB2 contact or maybe it can be adjusted buy the push buttons on the steering collum

    • J’ai soulevé le boitier en faisant remonter les faisceaux, ensuite j’ai testé les fusibles à l’ohmmètre. Sur le haut du fusible il y a 2 petits trous qui permettent d’accéder au circuit électrique et dans lesquels les pointes de l’Ohmmètre entrent facilement pour faire contact.
