I repaired my seat relay tonight. there are about 8 screws to remove.
1 behind the fuse cover..use a flat blade screwdriver to remove the cover. the philips screw is top left near the air duct.
3 philips screws underneath. 1 near the bonnet pull, 1 in the middle and one near the transmission tunnel.
1 screw above the air duct adjuster
1 holding the U shapped plastic trim in place below the steering wheel.
2 screws behind the U shaped plastic trim
There are also two screws holding the trim at the base of the footwell. The trim covers the steering column. I undid these but I think you can get away without removing them. If you do, to make life easier on reassembly, put the fixings back in before putting everything back.

I hope this helps.

Whatever you do dont force any of the trim. It all comes away easy enough so long as you've removed the screws.

Thanks. I have another issue, When I put the shifter in drive, it goes down to D but doesn't stay centered, it goes to the right and it's impossible to downshift or upshift manually. I really don't want to replace the shifter assembly. Any ideas?
