Windscreen relays

Looks like my relays are getting intermittent. Took it all apart today and tested the relays on a multimeter and all looked fine. Put them back in and everything worked as it should, so I put it all back together. Now it is slow again, so probably burnt contacts that can't pass the current.

The question is....

Where do I find replacements in the UK? They seem an unusual design.

Just pussin' through.

Re: Windscreen relays

Thanks for that both, I will have a word in the morning. If they are SPCO they will do the job.

Just pussin' through.

Re: Windscreen relays

Just spoken to Motorworks and the relay in the illustration referred to above is not the right one.

The correct part is ELA93415 which is a grey 5 pin SPCO plug in relay. Application list is K75, K100LT and K1200LT.

Cost is 10.18 each.

Just pussin' through.

Re: Windscreen relays

Replacing both relays sorted the problem.
