the relay is the top one on the door side in the fuse box under the steering wheel. It is yellow.

Thanks for the info.
I'm soon to take delivery of a TF, so I'm keeping my Mk1 Hardtop for the TF. The dealer couldn't find the exact relay location on their system.

John I'v had the Hardtop off for the past month. Though you do see quite a few F's with the Hardtops still on, even in the summer.




FWIW, the hard top relay kit with button and relay cost me 5.15 + VAT when I bought one at the end of last year. (The previous owner bought the hard top but didn't have the wiring added, and I wanted the demister).

Considering the amount of trouble I had getting the relay in for the demister, I'd suggest buying the kit instead may be worth it for an 'easy life'.
