    I though the 5.2 had the same internals and that the fusebox was adapted to the particular car based on external wiring and the removal of fuses and relays on the later cars. Perhaps they did simplify the later boards. You might be able to fit an old board to a newer car however, but I'm not willing to stake my reputation on it :D

    Sorry, it's not clear to me what car you have. Looking at the number of relays and fuses you have on the "old" board, your car is a 2.7. What exactly did you order?

    2.7 part number 157116
    5.2 part number 168488

    Hi, the part number ordered is #159635 (supposedly for under the passenger footwell). The car is a 1995 f355 (2.7 motronic).

    Ah, that's the US version of the relay panel in the front luggage compartment. No wonder it's different. Looks like you ordered the wrong part.

    Oh dear... thanks so much for clearing this up for me. Do you have any recommendations on parts suppliers? My previous order was from eurospares.

    Not sure where you're located? I usually do my shopping at Eurospares, Superformance or on eBay, but I'm in Australia (which has a poor US/Aus exchange rate). If you're in the USA, I'm sure the USA folks will chime in. Ricambi, Ferrparts, etc?

    Eurospares delivered the wrong part because the description on the invoice is - # 159635 FUSE BOX (under foot well).

    I did notice the incorrect description on their website

    https://www.eurospares.co.uk/search?partNumber=159635

    but when you click on the parts catalogue link on the link above for the 2.7 car, it takes you to a page titled "142 Electrical Boards and Devices - Front Part.". For those that are familiar with the car, the other fuse panel is found on the "Passenger's Compartment" page.

    I would notify them of their error. I have had problems with most parts suppliers (except perhaps Ricambi), but Eurospares seems to be one of the better ones (in my own personal experience).
