Default Fuse Box Keeps Falling Down...
The fuse box under the dash on my 84 dodge constantly falls down because the tiny little plastic mount can't support the wait of it. And now, the little plastic mount actually broke off so I literally have no where for my fuse box to go so it is just hanging there, dangerously close to my gas pedal. I'm sure some of you have had the same problem.... so how did you solve this? did you make a custom mount of some kind?

i would personally pull the fuse panel cover off. fix it with some 2 part epoxy. put the fuse panel back in it properly and then put it all back together properly. the fuse panel usually only drops when it has been removed and not been put back properly.

Mine is held into the cover with a few clips and the whole assembly is held on with four screws.

Some flat braces from your local hardware store are your friends. SHORT screws, too.
