Exclamation Where is 2nd gen Wiper Relay located????

i've looked on the main fuse box under the hood and it isn't located there....

there are also two relay boxes in the engine bay with 3 to 4 relays....could one of those be it?

if so which one? if there is a diagram or anyone has a service manual could you please post a picture of it....i've searched extensively!

Thanks

I'm having same problem I think. Wipers won't shut off unless I turn car off then back on. I can press lever down to turn them on and when I let off lever they shut off. Can someone please just take a picture of where the wiper relay is and post it?

The relay is on the firewall near the brake booster.

From feel, it seems that there's a clip to release on the relay, but neither my hand nor a screwdriver could fit back there to release it.

Is there some sort of trick to disconnecting/removing it?

No clip. The relay just lifts out. You'll need to wiggle it back and forth while pulling up.

Thanks- I must have wiggled, pulled, and twisted that thing for a solid half hour and it wouldn't budge from the lower wiring harness attached to it.

My apologies man, I was thinking of other relays in the box next to it. The wiper relay looks like it may have a locking tab on the bottom that needs to be squeezed to release it.

Did anyone figure this out? I have the same problem, wipers wouldn't turn off. After driving it for a couple hours they WILL turn off but Intermittent wiping keeps stopping for a few seconds, midway, stopping for a few seconds again, etc.

I am having the same problem. I can't seem to get the relay out to replace it.
