Hi FFR. Thanks, I did check out the relay and yes it is on the passenger side in the UK version as well, which I found out after stripping the other side out
NB, in future check which side the rivets are showing!!
Mine is a blue one and therefore potentially faulty. However your suggestion that this might not be the fault puts me off buying a replacement at the moment. I did find a way of putting a plastic shroud over the tabs on the blue relay, effectively replicating the design of the old model, but it made no difference. Either the shorting is down to another part of the design, i.e. nothing to do with the shape of the central pin/peg, or you are correct, I have a different problem.
Meantime I am trying to find an older one I can borrow to try.
