Fuse Box Cover
#1307828 - 08/28/06 04:57 PM

Hey,

A midst all the repairs I'm doing I have somehow misplaced the cover to my fuse box that is located in the engine compartment. I've tried the junk yards around here but no luck thus far. Can anyone help me here? It's for my 98 Contour SVT. I'm not sure if this cover is year or model sensitive. Let me know guys.

Thanks!!

I just checked with Ford for the second time and he said that the fuze box cover for all Contours from 96~98 are the same regardless of model so if anyone has one I could really use the fuse box. Thanks.

This is not true! Fuse box covers do differ. I don't know from when to when though.

Ya rly. Some are totally square boxes and some have a side that is angled.

Hey, new to this forum. Just obtained a 1996 Contour V6. Looking for a fuse box diagram as well. I have no radio, interior lights, etc.

Hoping someone can post a pic so I know what fuses to check.

Thanks
Paul

Welcome . Turn on the headlights and walk to the back. Are the rear lamps on? If not, then it is the headlamp switch. There is a recall on it. If not, post and we will provide the part numbers, cost and how to.

Fuse diagram here

In addition, download an Owners' Manual free www.fleet.ford.com

Fuse boxes should be the same for all 95-98, then somewhere in late 99 they changed.

I have a cover from a 98 for you. PM me.

The junk yards WON't stock them as an item, you'll have to physically go and pull one off a car yourself.

Wasn't that when they switched to the super mini sized fuses?

I know my early 98 has the older box.

I'll try and take pictures of my 98 and 2000 in case anyone needs to compare later on down the road.
