Help just had major short on my 2ltre 04 hdi due to a starter malfunction I have manage to sort the starter but the fuse? on the positive side of the battery has blown the only way I can get power is by bypassing it My question is what is this part actually called if I try looking for fuses I only get the usual type I don't want to run car without it in case there is another problem

I have decided it is a fusible link now I need to find out what the ampage is  or if I can sort a second hand replacement  I include a couple of photos in case anyone has one going spare

I'm pretty sure that thing is not designed to fuse. Surely it must be up to handling the full cranking current- which could be up to 600 amps!

Oh, and that is called a post type battery connector- available at Halfrauds etc.

Yes it is a fuse and recognised by citroen breakers (at least the one that I used ) attached picture of the one of my car with the cover broken away  If you look above the clip you will see a break it looks untidy because as a very temporary fix I ran a line of solder across the break
