Customer Question
My fuses are in...

My fuses are in the wrong spot and it’s difficult to place them back in right spot

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual yet?

I have there is no diagram

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your VW?

2012 voltzwagon jetta

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Jetta yourself? What have you tried so far?

The fuse for the cigarette lighter blew so I tried to change or find the fuse box so my friend adjusted the fuses under the hood now the car stalls and won’t pick up speed like it won’t go over 4ph

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
