  1. there should be a sight glass on the drier canister under the bonnet you should be able to see the fluid/gas moving if not then you could have a leak! Mine was leaking slowly from the pipe from the drier to the evaporator in the cabin. If you need it recharging you could take it to Merrow tyres in Farnham, i think there near you they can recharge it for you plus they add some dye so you can check for leaks under UV lamp. Martin is a mate of mine so hopefully he'll do you a deal! cheers Andy

  21. i had a coil pack replaced on my V8 due to a missfire, the dagnostic machine detected the coils were not firing hence the replacement. It turned out the problem was a short in the wiring loom it had chafed away were it passed by a bulkhead. Maybe a similar short might be causing your fuse to blow. Worth mentioning to you mecchanic. good luck Andy
