    Uprated rear springs?

    Thanks, yes 110kg is a little low for nose weight for this job. Is there no aftermarket stiffer springs available? Standard ones do appear small. Towbar height is within correct range. I guess Almera is not considered a towing wagon.

    N16 Cockpit fuse box location?

    Yes, thanks both. As you say more force was required. Had to put a bigger fuse in cig socket to run my 12v kettle! I know it is probably not recommended but have done this before on other vehicles with no problem. Did try to run a separate twin cable direct to accessory socket but found it...
