    New one off, old one back on and BING shes back to life!!! Cant see what the difference is as the two parts look identical although they have different part numbers. Weird.... Know of any good Audi breakers in Nottingham?

    Cheers Simon

    Did you swap the metal strips over as well?

    Im not able to swap over the metal strip as this is moulded in to the fuse holder. Ive got 3 new 30amp fuses in the new unit and these havent blown from what I can see.
