+1 on above request for spare fuse kit info/link.

 

I agree that blown fuses should not be a big issue (unless of course you encounter one and don't have any spares). Given the increasing amout of electronics and wiring in today's vehicles (esp CMax),I think a small investment in a spare fuse kit is just as important as perhaps a spare tire (especially since it appears the tire inflater provided by Ford could blow a fuse as was the case with TxWally).

@Kelleytoons Trust me, no need for a link. it's a multi-pack that you might find in a CVS, gas station, supermarket or walmart for less than 5 bucks, but this was it if you want to see http://www.walmart.c...cy-Kit/20971316.

 

OK, so once I took off the plastic retainers holding onto the molded felt panel, and removed said panel, then it wasn't so bad. The key was pulling straight down  on the retainers. I can't imagine trying to do this without pulling out that panel.  

 

@Zathrus as kc1174 said, no spare fuses in there, just empty slots for the ones that were listed as "not used". Really Ford? You guys couldn't give a spare or 2 when they blow out? 

 

ok, rant over. I can charge my phone again. Although now I'm nervous about why it blew in the first place with the compressor.

 

 

EDIT: PS, just for the record, the fuse puller didn't work on the ford fuse. I had to use a key to pry out the fuse. I beleive someone else in the thread above mentioned it. I can verify later the absence of ridge. 

EDIT2: PSS, the fuses do have a ridge, but they are really slim.

Along the same fuse thread, does anyone know where the 120v outlet fuse is located. I've been in three different fuse panels and can't seem to find the problem.

Help Needed:

 

I got my 2014 C-Max emissions tested the other day. It passed with flying colors. My  question:  they used the OBD port under dash by the steering column. Upon checking after the test,  is their suppose to be a cover over the OBD port. It seems its wide open to dirt getting in. I don't know if they forgot to put it back on or didn't have one.

 

Thanks

I've changed the cabin filter twice now since I've owned the car, you can do it without taking the glove box apart but if you do it's a lot of fun for the same reason, by the time I am done I'm usually sweating bullets and I've contorted my body into the shape of an accordion. 

 

On the Prius and HHR it was a 2 minute job, drop a strut for the glove box and the HVAC box was right there behind the glove box, squeeze two clips and pop in a new filter.  The C-MAX and Focus, behind the center console stack with a torx screw..much swearing involved.

 

I'm also missing one of the clips that hold the felt cover on but the car doesn't seem to mind.

I don't recall ever seeing a cover on mine.  I use it for a WiFi interface to Forscan software and its plugged in all the time.  There's another OBD port behind the cover at the left side of the dash.
