W115 fuse box diagram with amperages?

I've been searching high and low for which amp fuses I stick into which spots on my 1972 220D. It has the factory layout under the fusebox lid but all it says is what position controls what electricals. No amperage information.

Anyone know of such a map or just have a cheat sheet? My 220D is what my friends have called a "zero options" car. No AC, no power windows, no power anything besides things that a normal, very basic car would have.

Currently, the wipers don't work, reverse lights don't work, fresh air / heater blower doesn't work, clock doesn't work. Everything else works fine.
I know I probably will be chasing down some electrical gremlins or bad switches/resistors/motors but I want to start at the fusebox first before I start ripping apart the dash...

Thanks all,
Phil Forrest

I can give you the info from my 1975 300D. they are as follows

Fuse #1 is the first one most frontwards in the box there are 12 fuses total in the box

#1, 8 amp, warning buzzer, auto antenna, trunk lamp reading lamp, hazard warning light standing light (r) and (L) and fuel shut off valve

#2, 16 amp, passing signal light, radio, window wiper , cigar lighter

#3, 5 amp, heater fan

#4, 8 amp, horn, emission control, carb heater, delay switch, turn signal lamp

#5, 8 amp, combined instrument, stop lamp, back up lamp, glove box light

#6, 8 amp, auto trans timing

#7, 8 amp, tail, parking, standing right, side marker lights, hazard flasher dash board lights, licence plate light, shift indicator light, ash tray and thermostat switch

#8, 8 amp, tail, parking, standing left

#9, 8 amp, high beam right and indicator

#10, 8 amp, high beam left

#11, (16 amp, fog lamp) or 8 amp, low beam right

#12, 8 amp, low beam left


that is right from my fuse cover for my 75 115 300d. might be a lot of similarities

Thanks.
On mine #2 is a weird short fuse about 2/3 the length of the regular fuses. There is a brass riveted spacer that takes up the length. The fuse is a fat little thing but still rated at 8A. I might pop that little riveted spacer out so I can use a standard fuse since I can't seem to find any little fuses 1/2 inch long.

I'll copy this down though and see if any of the slots jive with my fusebox. I'm sure a few do.
