Dumb Fuse Question

Howdy,

I know I'm not a diesel owner, but as the owner of an old W123, I feel like one under the skin ;-) Anyway, my question is probably an easy one. On the fuse chart that's inside the fuse box cover, they use symbols (like a circle outline, filled in circle, and triangle) to tell what the fuse used there should be rated. For the most part, this is easy enough, but on a couple of them there will be one symbol, then a second one in parentheses. Does that just mean that both ratings will work fine or what? Thanks in advance for any info on this simple question

I think

I think that the parenthetical references are for optional equipment like heated seats, power sunroof, etc.

That is my resonably certain guess.

So if I have the optional equipment, I should put in the fuse that matches the symbol in parentheses, you think? Thanks

I would...

For example, what is the fuse that you are interested in? Something else to at least consider is to put new fuses with brass, rather than aluminum. Less corrosion problems in the future. I have ordered replacement fuses and gotten both, but now my cars only have the brass.
