    Does anybody know why the 30 green fuse next to the two relays on the Passenger side ot the AC blower is hot to the feel?

    Is this ok or could it start a fire?

    Not sure about the 355, but it's an infamous problem on the 348. The amperage draw on the system is apparently high enough to melt the fuse holder without blowing the fuse. When I bought my 348, the A/C system was totally dead due to this. The fuse was not blown, but there was no continuity. I've seen a tech article (on FerrariTalk???) about replacing the fuse and holder with a high quality gold plated holder for a stereo amp. Not a bad idea if you use the A/C a lot. Could it cause a fire? Don't know. But if it's hot to the touch, it needs some corrective action.
