My passenger window stopped working immediately after a car wash. I suspect it blew a fuse but I am baffled by the interior fuse box. I removed the small compartment in front of it but I can't figure out how to get the lid of the fuse box off and I don't want to break anything. Is there a trick to it or I am just being too cautious? Thanks.

I had to change an internal fuse for the first time last week, and I too was baffled by the fuse box, especially after reading the manual.

Firstly, you don't really need to remove the small storage compartment, this doesn't really help.

The best way to get to the internal fusebox is to get into your car upside down so that your head is down in the drivers footwell, then look up and underneath towards the outside panel. It's very difficult to get to and you may need a torch.

On the right hand side of the fuse box there is the small white tool for fuse grabbing - essential if you want to remove any fuses.

The rest of the job needs very small hands.

Enjoy the headrush!

S;p

For translation purposes: torch = flashlight ;)

Isn't there a switch that disables the passenger side operation? Did you check that? That got me several years ago !

:oops:

Good grief

Okay, I feel a little stupid .... but grateful for the remiinder. I forgot that the disable switch cuts off the driver's control of the passenger window (as well as the passenger's control). Here's hoping I remember the next time I accidentally flip the disable switch.

Thanks.

Where is the disable switch located? I think mine was inadvertently switched.
Thanks

I had the same problem. It was caused by the stupid pillar clip leaking. Water was dropping directly in the door connector under dash. I juste unplug the door connector, shoot contact cleaner, and it fix the problem.
