RE: 98 ML320
I am fairly certain I have a fusebox issue.
Has anyone ever taken the fuse box apart? I ran a jumper once, did a mod
where the front
aux lights would go on with the rear fog... I finally had them programmed at
and when I pulled the jumper, some of the strands remained in the slot of
one of the relays.
I pulled the box out only to see that it's actually 2 sections, top and
has anyone ever split these??? I want to get to the inside or bottom area
of where the aux light relay is.
I really have to get in there.. there has to be a stray strand of wire -
it's causing havoc... help???
What I fear is that if I take the 2 sections apart, I don't know if all of
the wires and sockets will remain in place.. thank you...
BTW, I want to thank you for your help.. I am afraid that if I tkae out the
fusebox and open it, the connectors will all fall out.. I just want to get
in there, carefully, and look for a few loose strands...
Again, thank you - I really appreciate it...

The fuse box lifts up quite easily, in 2 sections. Make sure you
disconnect the battery before working in the fuse box area, which will
mean you will also need your radio code after you re-connect the
battery. Nothing will fall apart when you lift the fuse box assy. The
fuse box assy is one piece and is only replaceable as such.

Rob, maybe I'm misunderstanding you...I'm sorry...
This is what I see...
-remove screws all around and lift out the entire fusebox.
-fuses are all on top, alot of plug in-connectors on the bottom
-there is a 'seam' all around with plastic 'snaps' that suggest the box can
be split apart to get to the inside of it...
That is what I need to get to - and I am afraid if I unsnap all around, I'll
make things worse...
Can it be accomplished, unsnap top and bottom, to get to the inside and
remove a stray stand of wire without removing the fuses on top, the
connectors on the bottom, without the whole thing falling apart????????
