Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

On my 96 9000, which has an airbag, pull open the plastic "door" which covers the fuses (this usually has carpet on the bottom part of it).

Once you can see all the fuses, you'll see one or more black plastic plugs at the top of the fuse box moulding, to the left and right of the clip which holds the fusebox door shut. Pull these out (I've only got one left on my car, but I guess there should be at least one on each side of the clip).

Now pull the plastic trim, attached "carpet" and fusebox door away from the fuses. But be careful not to pull downwards, else you'll almost certainly knock a whole load of fuses out with the edge of the plastic trim. Instead pull carefully outwards into the car , making sure the plastic trim clears the fuses.

Now you'll see the exposed fuses sitting on a kind of metal rack fitting. The relays are located behind the fuses. To get to them, you need to hinge the metal frame holding the fuses downwards. If I remember, there are a couple of (torx?) screws above the fuses holding the frame up. Just remove these and pull the fuse panel down. You should now be able to see and reach most of the relays. (The indicator relay is near the back, but you can reach in and remove as necessary).

Sounds complicated, but is quite straightforward - only takes a few minutes. Only tools are the torx screwdriver (usually one on the tool holder in the boot).

1. Open the fuse panel cover
2. Locate the round black 'rivets' on the aft end of the cover
3. Push a sharp instrument aprox. 1/16" into the center of each black rivet
4. The black rivets can then be pulled out
5. Remove the fuse panel cover and upholstery
6. Remove the two screws holding the fuse panel in place
7. Slide the fuse panel down and aft to access the relays
