    Popped a sidelight fuse carelessly stuffing around with number plate light gloves. Had to dismantle half the engine bay to get at the fuse! Madness.

    Thought they were in the slot next to the glove box. Side light fuse not there?

    There a few fuses there, but not lights... I have no clue as to why some in a nice easy to get at spot behind the glovebox, and a whole bunch more are buried inside the engine bay (sorry - "engine connection module"...).

    About an hour to change a fuse

    Yep it's a bit painful. Strange enough they cover the battery in the non turbo models which means you need a screwdriver to jumpstart someone ( or be jumpstarted). And how fiddely it is getting fuses out and back in the compartment next to the glovebox!

    I feel your pain there, had that apart a couple times, nice way to protect them but don't think anyone at Renault thought about servicing or repairs outside their own workshops..

    Grass Hopper...... disconnect power when working on electricals "carelessly".

    Will become very important when we all drive electric cars with 600V DC on board

    Wow, that is weird.
    The Scenic has a fuse panel with most of the fuses in it, at the right lower of the kick panel above the accelerator.
    There's a fuse panel in the engine bay, with the serious fuses in it.
    They have lost the plot there

    Yes indeed. There were a few choice "you bloody $%^#$%" words muttered to myself. Thankfully the high voltage cables are all a very bright orange for those of us inclined to be a bit casual.

    This is the how to guide that kept a mild semblance of sanity... The hand book helpfully suggests you take the task of replacing these fuses to a dealer due to "reduced access"...

    Yes the Scenic fuses are easily accessible but to prove the Scenic is indeed the spawn of the Megane, none of the fuses in the Scenic engine bay are marked so one had no idea what circuits are covered by which fuse.
    There's nothing printed on the fuse cover lid, nothing in owner's manual, nothing in the Haynes manual, nothing in the many Renault service bulletins (at least all the ones I saw which were many). If a circuit goes dead and itís not one of the dash fuses, one has to check every fuse until you find one thatís blown. If itís a intermittent dirty contact then put aside half a day to go through every contact.


    How hard would it have been for Renault to apply a 5 cent decal inside the fuse lid showing the fuse layout



    Cheers
