'53 plate Skoda octavia - the fuse for the windows, sunroof, central locking and the interior light keeps blowing. When I have been changing the fuse as soon as you use the central locking or open a window etc it blows instantly again. Iffside front window regulator hasn't been working properly and is making a loud noise almost like "crunching" but take panel off to check and there is no sign of any damage to the regulator. I am fast running out if ideas (and fuses 😨 lol). Any adivce and ideas I haven't tried yet would be much appreciated,
