    I have tried to attach an image of the relay/ fusebox- not sure if it worked !

    3 components I am trying to identify all attached on the outside of the black plastic fusebox/ relay housing, on the engine side close to the bulkhead

    1) black relay 5 wires, red blue green and 2 browns (from memory) underneath, 015 stamped on top

    2) Large lumpy component held in with two screws, thick cables inc thick black/ yellow reds green purple brown blue on a plug on top.(heater plugs timer maybe?)

    3) white relay wires inc red/white thick green 045 stamped on top.

    All three sit side by side in a recess on the corner of the fusebox, next to the thick live red supply. thanks

    Not sure on a diesel, but petrols usually have the tank fuel pump, DME/ECU main relay and lambda heating.
    I guess tank pump and ECU relay are the 2 there.

    2) DDE Relay (Diesel Digital Electrics)
    3) Alternator Cut-Out Relay
