XE - Where is the Fuse Box?

I need to check some fuses in the XE i got today. Its a GL wagon. June 84 Build. Now I've searched High and low for the fuse box. Is it hidden under a panel somewhere, cause me got no idea where it is. Tommorrow I will get a gregory's manual on the XE. This should help me, but for now, can anyone tell me exactley where it is.

Thanks in advance

Dwayne

YEP, undo four plastic screw lokking things(half a turn and they open) you'll need to release handbrake and slide plastic cover over it towards seat. they have glass fuses which are HARD to remove without breaking

Re: XE - Where is the Fuse Box?

Ok, found the fuse box and checked all fuses. The problem I have is the dash is not illuminated. When I checked the fuse box, theres a really tiny fuse, but nothing in it. Its empty. And under it, is written "1.5a ilu ins" Does that mean its the dash lights. When look at the fus box, its the fuse at the very bottom on the right. And its the only small one in the fuse box.

Is the fuse suppossed to be empty for the 1.5a?
