This is another small "frustration" for W123 diesel owners. The fuse box cover is mounted flat to the firewall behind and to the left of the brake booster. You can not just pull it straight out nor can you just push it straight back on. You do need to take a look inside your fuse box at least once a year. We recommend you do it immediately if you have recently purchased a 123 and or you have never looked inside the one you have owned for a while. You might be surprised at what is "growing" inside.
This short video will explain what is covered in the full on demand version.
Kent still remembers the first time he bought a W123 240D and tried to remove the fuse box cover. What were they thinking? It can be an exercise in frustration if you do not know the "tricks." Let Kent show you the step-by-step procedure. He will also discuss what to look for inside, how to seat your fuses, and what type of fuses you must use to prevent future electrical problems.
