Service Bulletin 7: 30A fuse upgrade kit
Type: Service Bulletin
Affected Models: All Models until september 2019
Garia has discovered an amp draw concern with fuse 14. Replacing mini fuse 14 (30amp) located in the fuse box under the bonnet with an external Midi style fuse will correct this concern.
The F14 mini fuse needs to be replaced with a 30A midi fuse & holder, outside the fuse box.
Inspect cars from 2015 to August 2019 to see if bulletin applies.
Check to see if there is an external fuse on the left side of the fuse box, see picture if there is, the bulletin does not apply.
Please check that Service bulletin 5 is completed or else do Service bulletin 5 also.
The spare parts required for this repair must be ordered directly from Garia.
When ordering, present the VIN of the vehicle, Garia will then ship the 30A midi fuse & holder free of charge.
