Andy, thanks for the AWESOME info. Didn't even have to go get a relay. The installed spare (rear relay) was already there!

Was very easy to access on my 03 Wagon through the access hole and 7mm with extension.

Would've only taken 5-10 mins, but of course Mr. Murphy appeared. When I was replacing one of the 7mm bolts, I bobbled it and it disappeared into a never never land pocket on the back side of the lower dash plate next to the OBD plug.

Thought about leaving it there, but I HATE RATTLES and figured I might be able to extract it with a magnet. 5 mins later and the magnet worked charms.

THANK YOU everyone for all the info posts and updates. This site rules!
