    Hi,
    heated rear screen has just stopped working.
    I am told that there is a relay that causes problems, could someone tell me exactly where it is please ?

    I can't help thinking that I would get a meter on the rear screen connections first and see if the electricity is getting that far or not.

    From distant memory, the relay is in the boot at one side. I'm sure someone will be more accurate than that.

    Relay located battery side of boot behind trim. Can you hear it clicking when you turn it on?

    Thank you both for replies.
    I am currently working on engine but as soon as I can fire her up, I will check as you suggest.
    Many thanks again for your time.
