Cheers Sporty,

I'm in agreement with you. Normally the fuse would go and hey presto you would start looking for the fault. I know that a few owners have said that the wires are piano string tight on their Scenics. The main questions are: What was the fault that started the fire, and secondly why didn't the protection means provide adequate protection. We've never replaced any fuses in the vehicle and so they should be at the ratings the manufacturer set out. I wanted to get my hands on the electrical schematics for the car so I could trace the wiring out myself (Being an Electrical Engineer) and see what the protective fuse is rated at (The mirror cables are very thin cross-section). Haven't managed to get a set of schematics yet.
