There is one set of fuses in the glove compartment, and another set in the trunk, behind the right side plastic/cardboard/mat with a handle.

50 amp fuse sits above the glovebox/fuse panel.. you need too take out the clovebox completely and then you lay on your back looking upward. its a big orange fuse sticking behind the fusebox.

its a real pain in the ***** work and hard too acces iff you got big hands.


best thing too do is first check iff you get current at the aux fan connection where the kidney's.frontbumper are..before tackeling the fuse part. most off the time its the aux fan motor thats broken..not the fuses.

I found it in back of the glove box in my 2001 530i.
My bet it is there. If you have FSU issues, the carpeting can easily be lifted up for better access.
You can then access the fuse you are in search of.

GOT IT! , why the hell they hide there!. I think there is no place in the whole car to put it but there!....

Any way thanks guys for your help. I appreciate it. It turns that my fuses are all ok. I need to see why the fan is not working.

I need to replace this fuse this weekend. Is it a standard size or something unique? I know it's a 50 amp. Can anyone post a pic of the location (the Bimmerfest pic does me no good!)? Do I really have to remove the glovebox? Mine is suffused with wiring and removing it is a HUGE PITA! Thanks.

A fuse rated at 50A likely would mean a MAXI-fuse. The description of "big-orange fuse" completely convinces me that it is definitely not an ATC/ATO or Euro-blade fuse. I don't know for sure but I am just saying that ATC, ATO and Euro-blade fuses are limited to 30A.

I don't think you could get a camera in there, Peter. As I understand it, the fuse is above the glovebox and above and behind the fuse block further up in the dash in a vertical position. You are going to have to remove the glove box. That is to say, I think the wires in the foreground of the picture on Bimmerforums are the wires coming out of the back of the fuse block.

I get my fuses at West Marine but there are numerous on-line and retail sources. A boat supply store will definitely have it (if it is in stock is another matter) and an auto parts store should.

MAXI on the left, ATC/ATO (similar to Euro-blade) on the right:
