Wiring to unused/spare fuses

I'm adding some new circuits and would like to make use of my D-90's "spare" fuseholders. Is there an easy way to access the backside of the fuse panel, short of disassembling the whole dash? Any tips?

Thanks in advance!

Add an extra fuse panel under your seat in the battery box. Painless wiring makes all sorts of panels for just this occurance.

It just comes off with a few screws. My 95 doesnt have a console, but the fuse panel is attached with 2 screws to a plate attached to the bulkhead with 2 screws. There isnt a lot of extra play in the wiring harness , but if you can get the metal plate free, then you should be able to twist and access the back of the fuse panel.


Here's a not-so-great pic of the area stripped down. You can see there is one screw on each side that will release the panel (green arrows). Of course there is some stuff covering up these screws, but I think you'll find it no-so-hard to get to.

Jim, great, thanks! I'll take another look at my '97 panel. Hopefully the "some stuff" won't be too hard to get out of the way. I just seem to remember something in my service manual about removing most of the dashboard just to access the backside of the fuse panel....
