hello to every member, this is my 1st post and would appreciate any info one or more of you kind people might have,
is it possible to remove the glove box as i find it impossible to get at the fuses i have located three screws, 2 at the top with-in the rubber bumpstops and one awkward one on the left inside bottom of the hinged flap but cant see whats holding it on the bottom right there is a little retaining catch on the right but pressing it down doesnt seem to do snything much other than let it down a couple of mm,s then a stop on the left side prevents further movement.
this is deffinately the worst arrangement and positionig of a fuse box i have seen in over 50 years of motering and as the car is 2016 and has had several updates im amazed this has not been remedied by now.
many thanks. TC.

Hi, Topcat.
Did you ever manage to find out how to remove the glove box? I have a failure of the BSI which I want to remove and repair/replace, but, as you found, you just can do nothing with the glovebox in position. The workshop manual is of very limited help, I spent £15 on that but it is of no value at all. I'm just crossing my fingers about this....
Cheers,
Crudfeatures (don't ask!)
