    Load Space Fuse Access (am I being stupid.....?)

    How does the rear cover for the load space fuse box come off....???

    Per the manual/iGuide its:

    1) Remove access panel (the small one where the jack is placed) - done that
    2) Slide top catch rearward.....well there isn't one ! (or is there and I can't find it ??)
    3) Pull off panel - can't do that as point 2 hasn't been done...

    Or am I missing something (like simple vision and I am not seeing an obvious catch to slide rearward)

    I don't think i am ever going to get a split-charge system installed at this rate... Rolling Eyes

    Yes - remove the jack cover.
    There is a small slide catch at the top of the next panel - its on the inside at the top.
    To open it you need to pull the catch towards the rear for the car.

    Once open you will see that the slide part of the catch (left fixed to the car body side) actually locates the cover panel in 2 places.

    When you come to replace the cover you need to ensure it is pushed back well at both end to ensure the catch locks both positions.

    This is mine anyway - have been fiddling around with it as after the garage visit I had developed bad rattle for the back of the car.
    Found it was this cover panel only located in one of the catches.

    Word to the wise - watch the back of your hand when sliding the latch - there is not a lot of room!

    well taken another look...and Censored if I can find something that wants to move...From what I can see there is a big bit of black plastic that could be something called a "catch" but it doesn't want to budge.

    (And you are right - watch the back of the hand. There are some sharp edges in there)

    LR have really not made it easy with the new one have they Rolling Eyes
