Hi ya

Your relay for your heated front screen is in you footwell just above the fuse box it's a black one in a holder that the relay is recessed in to.
If you clear the fault memory using the dis then restart the test does it come back ?
Are you trying to test it with the dis ? Or is it a fault ?

Before you get to deep have you check to see if the screen is working properly
Remove the side trims inside disconnect the wires connect a bulb across the terminals and switch the screen heat on if both lights light up, the cars wiring is ok and working

Thank you for the reply marque, I'm sure the relay I changed was under the bonnet and I'm sure it was the one with the snowflake on
Oh sorry I forgot to put its r52 convertable

You need to check the supply to the screen to ensure there is one, and its not unknown for a new heated screen not to work due to being faulty and this occurs more often than not on repro screens not the genuine MINI ones.
If there is a supply there, then check the circuit across the screen with a multi meter or similar.
The screen earth has been fitted properly hasnt it?
And as said, the snowflake is for air conditioning not the heated screen.

Be a bit of a swine if youve had a new screen fitted and you werent pressing the right button to start with?

Thanks for the input guys, I'm going do the checks today, just Iv proberly reading to much and getting a little confused as I have been reading under bonnet fuse FL10 50A K416 Relay heated front screen( this is the one I replaced), and there is one Located behind kick panel drivers footwell K416 Relay heated windshield, just confusing. The windscreen was replaced under insurance but was not working with the original screen, I will have a clearer picture later today,

Right getting a bit closer just need to get inside this kick panel

Some relays might be on the back of the board too, they are on the Gen 2?

I used to visit quite a few garages at one time doing outside work and I always found it odd if you asked a mechanic there who was working on them all day long, a question, that seemed fairly obvious to me they didnt know the answer, the only way they could find out was to ask the computer. theres no old school hands on these days, just button pushers.

Yep I'm sure no that, been on the phone to dealers again today after picking up my relay,
I removed the fuse box as I had high that's where the relay might be, nope
So called the dealer ask the parts department to double check the location and they say it's next to the fuse box I say I have the panel of and it's not there, answer was well I don't know that's where it should be, so still no closer but I have a new relay so when I do find it, I would have thought it would have been in accessible place so the search goes on

Your car should have a heated screen should it, I mean originally? someone previous hasnt just fitted a replacement one and it happened to be heated as thats all that was available?
Thus the car might not be wired up for it?
I dont have the wiring details for the Gen 1 unfortunately only Gen 2

I just suggested it as the GEN2 has relays both sides and the screen one is one the left side thats all.
I would think it comes off the same?
