If you don't have the excellent American Bentley MINI manual to hand this is a useful and comprehensive list of:-
MINI Fuses / Relays / Earth Points

Engine compartment fusebox
(Note: The high current fuses FL1-FL5 are underneath (on the bottom) of the Engine Compartment Fuse panel. To access them, first, disconnect the battery. Then remove the fuse panel cover, then the multi-plug at the front of the fusebox, then the 8mm screw at each end, and the 10mm screw holding the cable from the battery. If you then fiddle the battery cable out of the way, there is just enough slack in the other wires to tilt the fusebox down at its front end, to reveal the panel guarding the big fuses, which is located at the rearmost end of the fusebox. The cover prises off with a small screwdriver. The high current fuses FL1-FL5 themselves are then revealed, and can be removed with a Torx 25 bit (2 screws each).

High current fuses FL6-FL12 are on the right.
Fuses F1-F10 are on the left but are indicated in Mini wiring diagrams as F01-F010

That's way too complicated for me to comprehend - but no doubt this will prove uber helpful to the DIY'ers among us. :)

Worthy of a sticky maybe?

Hi, can anyone tell me where about in a MCS luggage compartment the extra fuse box is located? I have a battery drain which my other half is trying to trace but there is still a drain even with all fuses and relays removed from the Fuse box in the passenger footwell and in the engine bay :-/
