    120A battery fuse

    Hi guys so I'm moving house next week and haven't touched the old girl in a while so decided to prepare her for the move. Now I unfortunately have broken a wrist and torn at least a few ligaments in my knee so I had my mum help me.........
    This is where the problem is she connected the jump leads ,I think we can see where this is going, turns out she put them the wrong way round. So the extent of the damage so far seems to be limited to the large 120A fuse for the battery.I've had a quick look around and can't find one with much ease so wondered if any of you lovely lot know exactly what it is I'm needing or even better if anyone who is breaking has one available if they're reusable? Your help would be much appreciated as I could really do without the expense of recovery for something hopefully so simple.

    This happened to me with a new battery i purchased, poles were on the opposite side . It was throwing it down .I blew the main fuse , i had to break off the plastic cover and bend it over to make contact while i ordered one off ebay .

    Something like this from eBay
    But I don't think it is 120A
    Just type in fuse and the the current rating eBay will through up some options.

    Or just join the two bolts together with a bit wire as a temp measure until you get the correct fuse.
    And don't let you mum touch your car again.
    Without supervision.
