I have a 2008 207 pug and am planning to hard-wire a dash cam to it for insurance purposes. I checked out a couple of tutorials online and it seems pretty straight forward:
1- Check the fusebox map
2- Use the multimeter to find out if this fuse has power only on ignition
3- Plugin the fuse tap
4- Connect the wires either to the dashcam's adapter or to a 12 to 5v dc adapter
5- Tidy everything up and you're done!

But I can't to the life of me find the fusebox inside the car. I checked the glove compartment and it wasn't there. I think it has something to do with my steering wheel being on the left side instead of the right.

I appreciate any tips or pointers!!

When you open the glove box, there is another panel that comes off within the glove box on my 2010 207.

Put your finger in the red circle and then pull. Even then its hard to see the fuses as they are quite recessed. Hope you find it ok.

If not could always tap into the back of the cigarette lighter. Thats what i oplan to do when I fit my dashcam anyway!

I have a different glove compartment. Spent a solid 10 minutes staring through the compartment, but couldn't find a latch or a hint of a fusebox present. You got me interested in the cigarette lighter thing, but I don't know how to disassemble the dashboard to reach the wiring.

Here are a couple of pics of my glove compartment (sorry for potato quality)

It might be worth your while registering yourself in Service Box with any old independent garage name (fictitious) and coughing up €5 for the one hour access to get the info on your car after you have entered the VIN. I did that some weeks back to find out how to wire in a rear camera.

Already have an old account. Which section should I go to? I tried searching fusebox and only got the info regarding the one under the bonnet.

Ah, shame its not in there.

Do let us know when you do find it eventually. I cant imagine there are many other places to put it. Its got to be under the dash somewhere?

As for the cigarette lighter, i think most of the plastic in that section just pulls apart. Just be careful and have a play. From what i remember my cigarette lighter is on spade terminals so you could just create a simple Y cable, female on one and and male on both other ends. Same for ground. This means should you ever wish to remove it, its easier.

I find Service Box a bit hit and miss for some items. Have you tried looking under the steering wheel area, yours being LHD. I would be surprised if the fusebox has been moved from left to right with a change of steering position. Tried the electrical part, I assume, so try Equipment, Fascia Panel Assembly - there is a pull off panel under the steering wheel to the left of it. Also, have you access to a Haynes manual as they are very good?

Go to Service Box but do not logon or if logged on log out, then you should see at the top right "Handbook Pack". Select this and select your language (I tried French being LHD) after selecting the model and its variant for yours and the date of production you will find the front cover of the handbook appears. I went to (in French again) "Information Pratiques" then "Changement D'un Fusible" - "Remplacement D'un Fusible" . You need also to look at the next pages "Fusible dans la Planche de Bord" for the fuse board layout. I know that somewhere you can download the whole handbook but have forgotten for the moment how and where as I did this for my 508. There you will see illustrated perhaps (and hope) what you are seeking. I hope this helps and solves your problem. A further thought, you can select the language before you search so if you are a non English speaker this may help you but ensure they drive LHD!

On further looking it appears that only some language versions of the handbooks are down-loadable. English and Polish I have found so far. If you see two sets of icons once you select the vehicle the one with a tiny icon to its right is the downloadable version. An a Macbook (don't know about Windows) you can right click to download the linked file. If you are unable to download the pages, let me know the language and I will see if I can locate the pages for you and send you a screen grab.

Thanks a bunch! Changed my location/language to English (Lithuania) to access the LHD handbooks and found where the fascia panel (fuse box) was located.

Here's a photo if anyone is interested. The panel is really easy to remove and clip back; there's a small gap on the left side were you can jam your fingers and pull it out.

Being left hand drive the BSI is behind the plastic panel under and to the left of the steering column. Pull it off and you may find a bunch of wires hiding it but the fuses will be there.
