You have a mid 2003 on car then - MGR changed the passenger compartment fuse box at the same time a lot of the electrical system was changed as a result of fitting the Pektron SCU. The new fuse box uses the mini blade fuses as opposed to the old type blade fuses which are larger.

Haynes never did a revised manual for these changes, so only shows the earlier type of fuse box. If you don't have the owners handbook, it makes things a little more difficult. If your car still has its original plastic fusebox cover, there is a schematic on it which shows the layout with a symbol to show what each fuse is for.

Better still, have a look at the first post on this thread on mg-rover.org: fuse listings. - MG-Rover.org Forums

very helpful thanks.

Yes that diagram is much better, does anyone know if everything is wired in the same?

I need to know which fuse is in the line with the front lambda sensor and camshaft sensor??
