Trying to obtain a couple of "add a fuse" to the fuse box in my merc A Class 220 sport (W176). I cannot find what size the physical size of fuse there is in the fuse box as I want to order the "fuse Tap" ( as they say in the US). has anyone experience of this? the 2 cams are installed and working but I want to hardwire the system to enable the parking module which guards the car when parked and the ignition is off.
Help!

Perhaps I was not clear enough. To fit an 'add a fuse' I need to know the size of the fuse holder. The existing fuse itself is about 18mm long. Is this a standard fuse size or a mini fuse or what??

I looked at a few photo's on Google and they appear to be standard size.
Here is a size comparison:

Thanks for the pic. I have now used the standard size and it fits. The hardwiring is now complete and everything is working well. I now have the 'parking mode' set up to run for 6 hours after ignition is off, and I have the cig lighter avail again to charge my iPhone and/or iPad.
One added comment, some reports on using the Thinkware kit have confused the colour coding of the wires.The Red wire is for the 'always on' fuse and the yellow is for the switched fuse. Plus I thoroughly disagree with the fitting instructions which would result in the camera being protected by the amp setting of the fuse used. Piggyback a 3 amp fuse is by far the safer method of connecting.
