    On the end of the dash.

    Open the drivers door and you will see a cover. Just pull it off carefully.

    Right i have brought in the panel. The Fuse layout is on a sticker so perhaps yours has been removed.

    No.33 is the Fag lighter and it should be a 15A fuse.

    If you need to know anymore let me know as i have the panel here beside me.

    36 is fog lights, rear fog light. I guess both front and rear going by that.

    Its a 15A fuse to.

    Is there a haynes manual for the A4 v6? i was having trouble finding one so popped down to the haynes museum as its only 20mins away and asked there and they had nothing listed for it only manuals for the 4 cylinder models.

    No, the Haynes manual doesn't cover the V6, but it'll still be ok for a lot of other non-engine-specific stuff, including the fuse box.

    Well this was odd, I swapped what we thought were the fog lights fuse with the fag lighter one with a view to stopping on the way back and getting some new fuses. Went to leave, car turned over but never started.

    Strange. Tried it a few times and still no joy. The only thing I had done since the car last run was swap the fuses over. Put the fuse back in the 'foglight' one and hey presto, the car started!

    How wierd is that?Was wondering if it was the imobilizer fuse or something?

    Maybe my car is a 2000 so perhaps some of the fuse positionings are different.
