    I know this doesnt apply to this thread but fault finding in general. Unless you can be sure you have isolated a unit completely and know what each pin does dont be tempted to test by sending a new supply to it. I am talking about a separate battery with test wires coming from it. A mate did this on a Nissan Micra and fried the ECU. Long story but it ended up the car was scrap, I cant remember all the details but just a friendly warning. john

    Just done mine, but the wiring had melted so had to change the plug also. Bit of a faff but not worth paying a garage. IIRC the resistor slides to one side before its able to pull out.
    They fail over time due to the heat, so for the hassle I wouldn't recommend getting one from a breakers. You'll end up changing it sooner.

    My wireing looks good.
    I have a breakers near me that has a relay broken so I can try it and with no hassell.

    I was thinking maybe that it did slide to one side because I went away from it and when I came back I must have slid it when I was jiggling it unbeknownst to myself because it came out very easy.
