The owner’s manuals aren’t clear which fuses are 8A and which are 16A and it varies from year to year. Bentley is even less clear and there is a mistake in the manual but the color wiring diagrams explain which fuses protection which circuits.


  • There are twelve fuses in fuseboxes of 70-79 models but only 10 in the 68-69 models.
  • 68-69 models only use 8A fuses.
  • Accessory means radio in most cases but can also mean gas heater in addition.
  • Fresh air fans were mainly available on non-US models for defogging the front windshield.

WARNING: Terminal and harness assignments for individual connectors will vary depending on vehicle equipment level, model, and market.
