There are loads of different boxes which vary in price from quite reasonable to totally rediculous. Yours is at the rediculous end at £270... The Citroen part number is not very useful unless you're looking to buy a new one, as it's not marked on the box anywhere. The long number on the box is the maker's part number - this is the one you need to match if buying second hand; and its usually best to search on ebay on that number - it is used in other Citroens, and probably Pugs as well.

Can anyone tell me what the yellow circled relay is for. When switching the ignition on this is the only one that doesn't activate.

one should be the starter and the other is usually a spare.

Thanks Marc.
Any idea which one could be the spare. Are they accessible to de-solder from underneath?
I believe that there are two circuit boards underneath and is it possible to separate these easily?

I've never removed one of these personally, and each of these can be different, as there are many variations of these.

One of the relays I think is for the fuel pump, but I can't be sure without further investigation of this type. Given that the relays are not easily removed, most just replace the fusebox. I'll put up a wiring diagram in the Diagnostics section of the engine fuse box for you. If I'm not mistaken this is for your C5 MK II DW12TED4? If so your fuse box is part number 6500CK. They can be gotten from £45 up on the bay....

I'll put the link here when I've uploaded it. :wink:
