Default Fuse Box - is this normal?

Hi All

I've just recently purchased a new, to me, 308 GTi. I've browsed this forum but this is my first post, so hello to everyone.

It's a great car, but not perfect... there are a few irritating noises coming from the door card, but I may (time will tell) have made progress sorting this with a can of silicon lubricant.

I find the satnav a bit limiting and not a patch on my portable tomtom. The tomtom has a much better live traffic system and I was looking to see how I could hard wire it in, mounting it so you look through the steering wheel to see it.

Anyway, I opened up the fuse box to find a mess of wires! See attached picture. Surely this cannot be normal. Before I take the car to the dealer to inquire if it has had a major electrical issue please can you let me know if in fact this is just a daft design fault common in all cars?

Thanks

Rob

TBH, that looks messy. You've got a pair of red tweezers for removing fuses - there's no way you'll be able to get at the fuses with that birds nest in the way!

I can't imagine for one minute that it left the factory in that condition, so I'd be inclined to look into it

Yeah, this is normal. Not for all cars but obviously for Peugeot, at least 308 T9.
This is my first Peugeot and I was, huh, surprised when I saw this. My car is LHD so the mess looks slightly better, but still ....

Wow that's quite scary, I would have expected things to be neater than that

Yes, my Allure is the same. Goodness knows where the actual fuses are.

Thanks everyone, good to know this is normal, but what an odd design...! I've never seen anything like this on any other car.

I suppose if you ever need to unplug a particular loom, you can get to the plugs, but even so...

Dove is optional, not in Active trim?

The car was at the dealers today so I asked them to check that the fuse box is OK- they said it was.

It might be normal for peugeot, but it certainly isn't normal for any other car I've ever owned!
