As you can see, it's really a dual relay with 2 connectors, nothing to do with what's in the fuse box #-o

Good call on hitting up the first fives website, those guys know their L-jet stuff =D>

G03rt2, got this PDF file most likely from the "Big Blue Book" for US cars :-?

Other than Pod's potential observation that you may have aftermarket A/C, which was fairly common in Euro cars, the venting and operation of the knobs and levers should all be the same [-o<
