MK4

The MK4 has a common problem of melting the fuse box on top of the battery there are a few things that can cause this:

The nuts holding the wires and fuses in place have come loose causing high resistance witch can cause heat and can melt the fuse box.

Alternator cable has over time created high resistance between the terminal and the cable at the fuse box witch can cause heat and melt the fuse box.

Cooling fans are going bad witch can cause high resistance and over heat the wires and fuse box.

Adding extras that require extra load on the fuse box can also cause overheating and melting of the fuse box.

I would always recommend that you find and fix the problem before it just happens again.
