Hi all, as per title I'm after the location of the K40 relay box... I have a feeling it's the normal fuse box but I'm unsure. Reason is the headlamp wash wipe system plugs into a connector in there and a relay has to be plugged into a certain location too.

So, any ideas which of the pictures it is??

Cheers!

Cheers @brianbrian !

There's a twist though, so I looked on the WIS print out, and it's K40/2... Which is the fuse and relay box!

Never simple is it!

As star motor service said, take the cover of the fuse box, then you can undo the screws, so you can take the relay cover of.
Star is correct. I was getting confused with the N10 on the 129.

I need your help again guys... So, this is the instruction from WIS for the headlamp wash wipe installation...
' insert cables and connector into K40/2 Relay and fuse box, insert connector socket 6, fuse in location 45, and relay in location 6'

Only issue is, this is my relay and fuse box, it's different! I have no connector slots or socket for any relay...

How can I wire in a feed for the headlamp wipers? Regarding the Headlamp washer pump I may connect the headlamp pump to the windscreen pump so they both operate (not an issue tbh), but the wipers are an issue.

Any ideas?? I'm going nuts trying to figure this out! Thanks!

I think that diagram is for a different year of fusebox.
The 202 had a change of fusebox design 1/12/94 then again 1/6/1997

21/03/1997... Would this retrofit be on WIS for my year? I haven't got WIS :(.

I just need the Headlamp wash wipe retrofit, everything else seems fine to just plug and play.
