Garage List
Finally got around to doing this.

As others have mentioned, I didn't remove the whole glove box, just used those latch releases. And for this who are curious, you need the ATM fuse tap.

I also tapped into fuse 5 as my 8 was occupied.

Thanks for the write-up!

Great DIY i used it to hard wire my V1 however after reading through the whole thread i'm afraid i'm still confused on what amp fuses to use in the add-a-fuse device. People seem to be using all different combos, 2 x 20amp fuses, 2 x 10amp fuses, 1x 10amp & 1x 2amp or 1 fuse only

Also i planned on using slot 5 (as it's vacant) but according to the fuse diagram card it is allocated to the steering wheel picture along with fuses 49 & 75. Any idea what that picture means? Am i still ok to use that slot?

At the moment i am using slot 8 with a 20amp fuse + a 2amp in the secondary slot of the add a fuse device (in addition to the 2amp fuse in the V1 Hard wire kit) Just a bit concerned that the V1 is now actually protected by 24amps in total and could get fried?
