Peugeot 306 Instrument Panel Fixed

Hey, I'm happy to tell you about this one! We've had beautiful holidays all along the coast and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean but one night the instrumet panel of the Peugeot 306 went completely off. No fuel gauge, no rev counter and no speed gauge.

It is kind of funny to drive in these conditions and it was Saturday so I decided to search the fuse box and try to fix it by myself.
The fuse box is under the steering wheel as you can see in this picture

You see that big screw? You only have to turn it one quart to the left to see the fuse box open.
This is the 30 fuse box for the Peugeot 306:

All I had to do was check all the fuses and replace the faulty one, I had found a fuses application chart that marked the fuse F2 as the faulty one related to the instrument panel. Fuses are indexed with a small white number in the box.
Well I've replaced it but it didn't work! The instrument panel was yet off!
As I had an extra 5A fuse and another 10A fuse, my dear one had the idea to replace one by one the 5A first and there was the fuse number 25 one, I've fiddle a little bit with it, I've unplugged it and then plugged it back again ant it worked!
We could go on with our holydays happily.
