R172 fuse allocation

I would be grateful if anyone can assist me with fuse allocation information for the 172. As I understand it fuses are located in the engine compartment, beside the the LH dash/glove compartment and in the boot but what is each fuse for. The manual is no help!

I am in the US and have an SLK 350 I bought with 4,500 miles. The fuse allocation chart should be in the trunk along with the spare tire tools. I don't know where it would be on an AMG. My chart was missing. They told me they could not come up with a part number so they could not order it. One of my friends that has a car like mine took his chart to the dealer and showed it to the parts people. The were able to identify it and ordered one for me. When it arrived they wanted $56.00 for it. Being the cheap guy I am I went to my salesman and complained. He told the parts department to give it to me. They did. It is to big to copy.

In the 172 I have no option other than to put the wheels in first with the frame on top in order to close the separator; the 171 made far better use of the luggage space but I guess few other owners used the upper shelf space as I did. The photo shows the 172 rear fusebox and associated electrics.

Many thanks for that however I note that the reversing lamps are not listed. Just thought it might be an easy way to locate the fuse.
