Checking the microfiche, the below-dash fusebox was fitted up to and
including 85-C-902000, if there was such a vehicle. The under-bonnet
housing has been used since 85-D-900001, although the part number has
changed a few times.

Cable locks (two levers, either side of the gear lever) were used up to
85-B-901221. A single knob was fitted between 85-B-901222 and
85-E-901500*, and a rotating knob between 85-F-900001 and 85-H-902400.
85-J-900051 onwards have the electronically controlled system that
accompanies the TORSEN.
