Okay I'm having real trouble getting hold of the correct relay and with it being in a really awkward place can't really get my avo  under the dash. Can anyone suggest a way I can Mexicaneer a regular relay to work in place of this on just to get it thru the retest? Tia!

Without looking to much into it could you just make a short loom for the replacement relay with male lucas terminals to plug into the vehicle relay socket where required.

That's what I'm planning but I really need to know what goes where as it's in such an awkward place and can't get my multi meter in.

Okay, quick update, the relay didn't work, there must be as break in the loom or an ecu fault, couldn't take a temp feed to the OEM fog lights as they're in the tailgate so it's now got a £2.99 light on the bumper and a £1.99 illuminated switch on the dash. Mot now passed, temp light soon to be removed! Job done! ;-)up
