New Fuse Box Question On Loose Fuses..
Posted 23 March 2019 - 03:01 PM
I’ve just finished replacing the wiring loom with a minispares (auto sparks) pre-made option after struggling with the old wiring mess for years. At the same time I reintroduced the 4 way fuse box that had long been disposed off.
My question is that the glass fuses seem to rattle about and without driving an inch since the loom change I’ve already had 10+ instances where I’m losing functions until I give them a roll about.
This is a brand new box/fuses from minispares. Is there a trick to improving the tightness?
Thanks in advance!

Thanks Wiggy, I’m starting to think maybe I was better off without one! The metal that holds the fuses is really thin and springy, doesn’t seem to want to bend.
I don't have one, but I'd imagine removing the fuses and squeezing the terminals together with a pair of needle nose pliers would do the job.

Bit of a ball ache, but they'll be easier to 'manipulate'.

I think it's terrible that you have to do this, but every new one I've bought has been this way till I found an original Lucas New Old Stock - that one was made of much better stuff.

I recently got a new one from Moss (4 fuse type) - it's absolutely fine so perhaps there are still good o/e spec ones out there.......
