Move the Fuseholder inside ?


Recommended Posts

I'm done worrying about the old style fuses and will replace them with blade fuses one way or the other. I also don't want to cut sheet metal so that nothing is permanent.

The car is a '69 1600 with a 6 fuse system.  I'm not worried about modifying the wiring harness to do this.


Having made those resolutions, I've looked for a fuse holder that will fill the existing hole in the engine bay-

          No luck so far due to the designs available.  They are-

                  Surface mounted with wires exiting below and too tall,

                  Or surface mounted with wires out in the open above the surface, requiring the addition of holes thru the metal surface


So, I'm now thinking that moving the fuse holder inside under the dashboard.  Is this ground that's been covered before?  I wasn unable to find anything with a search

It's a bigger job relocating the fuse box than it would be overcoming any mechanical issues about securing a new box in the stock location (or at least very near) and directing the wiring.

I use this as an auxiliary fuse holder, I have it under the hood just towards the cockpit from the original (in my case 12-fuse) box. I don't know if it would fit in the original spot but I imagine you could make a plate to mount at the original spots and mount this on the plate.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
