On an 91 Golf Cabriolet (Mk1), the fuse box is hidden behind the knee bar, and has no access hatch. I need to have a look at the top of the fuse box to see if fuse 19 (indicators) is broken.

Is there a way to reach the fuse box in a comfortable way?

For a lot of those early golfs it was easy just to drop the bottom half of the dashboard – Rory Alsop Jun 30 '13 at 20:58
@RoryAlsop - You should put this as an answer. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jan 9 at 1:46

There is definitely a flap which opens downwards and is accessible underneath the knee bar. You may find it easier to squat down outside the car with the door open wide to access this flap.
