While it is possible to inspect the wire in the bladed fuses used on the Citroen C3 to check the status of the fuse, this method is not 100% reliable :cry:

A fuse that looks blown is blown, but a fuse that looks intact can actually be blown :o or corroded, damaged or just faulty :shock:

Blown = open circuit and this means not working.

Intact = conductor is continuous and the fuse is working.

A cheap tool like this one on Amazon will do the job of fuse testing for you so you don't need to rely on visual inspections.

The fuse tester for the Citroen C3, C3 Picasso and the C3 Pluriel is easy to use and can be found on eBay.co.uk - Fuse Tester (click here) ;) and don't get caught-out with a good looking fuse that is actually a bad one :cry:
