    Relay location whats it for?

    Was looking in the fuse box and I have a spare relay slot with contacts was wondering what its for.

    see below:



    4th from the right near the yellow ones



    Contacts visible in the middle gap at the top.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    Also you can possibly see my fuse box is missing the contacts for the front foglights but I was wondering if this relay slot was for the front foglights.

    The plot thickens, wonder why the contacts for the fuse is missing then if the relay contacts are there.

    What are the chances they are loose/tied up out the way.

    Also the front foglight connections am I right to assume the connection loose hanging down behind one of the radiators on the passenger side is for the passenger foglight.

    I have been doing some research and have seen posts stating the other connection either been in the drivers side wheel arch or near the horn.

    Shall have to take the fuse tray down to have a look and take the front bumper off for a better look.

    what do you think?

    Cheers

    sounds like ur car is only partially wired for front fogs then if the contacts arent in place for the fuse.....time to get creative and maybe resort to an aftermarket fitting kit for the fogs if u really insist of having them!

    You'll probably find not every pin is in the relay location. No chance of them being hidden away somewhere
