No inside electrics

So today all of a sudden my footwell lights and light from stero etc don't work I'm guessing a fuse has gone? Which one will need changing and can I get a replacement from halfords? And any type that I need? Thanks in advance

Scary this, it happened to me also. Check fuse 7 and 14 in the footwell fuse box, I also had a blown fuse which meant the heaters didn't work, think that was 36.

In the under-bonnet fuse box there's a white fuse puller that makes getting them out a hell of a lot easier!

Ye dont use scissors or pliers because I didn't realise there was such a tool until I had already fixed my fuse

I did the same thing - faffed about with pliers to get the fuse out, then went to the under-bonnet box for the spare and LO AND BEHOLD WHAT IS THIS?!

I was quite unhappy with myself for not checking first.

You may already have a spare in the fuse box that you got the fuse puller from. Match the fuse amp/colour and job done. Beware when purchasing a replacement fuse as there are 3 sizes. 8th Gen's use the "Micro Blade Fuses". Dirt cheap from eBay, Eurocar Parts, Maplin etc.

You done better than me I got the fuse out the box and still didn't notice until I blew the fuse on my new car and saw it in there. Now thinking it may not have been there... I'll say that so I don't feel stupid haha

The ones that run down the centre IIRC are the spare ones. Should be one of each and they are positioned 90 degrees to the active fuses.

You can see the top 7.5 and 10 Amp fuse in the photo below.

Yep, as long its a brown 7.5amp fuse you've take out. Saves an immediate unnecessary trip to the shops.

When I p/x'd my last Civic the under bonnet fuse puller for some strange reason ended up in my toolbox.

Saves having to go digging for it as I knew I had a Garmin to hardwire in.

Forgive me for I have sinned

Hopefully the new owner isn't on here. He'll be after you...
