Got a silly question for you all. Please don't laugh. My dad has just got an e39 530D. Its a fantastic car, very pleased with it.
Anyway, while hoovering it out we came across a little orange fuse puller tool, stuck under the seat. It looks as though it 'clips' in somewhere, but where? Surely it doesnt just lie around in the glovebox or something, its tiny.
Also, is there anything we should consider replacing on the car. Its a 2001 and done 45,000 miles. It also has a full dealer service history.
the fuse puller clips into a spot usually on the lid of the fuse box. i am not sure if the fuse box is the same in that model as in mine, but my fuse box is in the engine compartment top right. hope this helps

Fuse box in the E39 is in the glovebox. Open the glovebox and look for the two white release tabs. Twist them and the fusebox should pivot down from the top of the glovebox. The fuse puller fits into place. Push up the fusebox and then twist the tabs to lock in place.
