VW Golf Mk4 / Bora / Jetta / Passat B5 / Skoda Octavia 1 / Seat Leon / Toledo / Cordoba fuse relay (panel) diagram explained

Here is a VW Golf Mk4, Bora, Jetta, Passat B5, Skoda Octavia 1, Seat Leon, Toledo, Cordoba, Audi A3, A2, etc. fuse relay (panel) diagram explained. The fuse box (panel) is located on the left side of the dash panel behind the plastic cover.

Take the plastic cover out to have acces at the fuse panel. You replace the defect fuse with a new fuse of the same ampere number!

You should never repair fuses and do not replace them with a fuse of a higher amperage, it may cause fire.I recommend always carrying replacement fuses in your vehicle because you never know when you need it.

You can find a lot of fuses for cheap HERE: https://amzn.to/32PYYwW
