96 1.4 Heated rear window not switching on - Mike H
My son's Megane has a problem with the heated rear window, which fails to turn on sometimes/most of the time. Unfortunately, the car is in Cardiff along with the workshop manual and I'm in the middle of Austria so I can't look at the problem for him. I'm wondering whether it is the switch, or more likely to be a relay which is failing to activate? If the latter, is it easy to get to and fix?

Lots of faults on these to stop the hrw working,rarely the switch.Broken wiring through the tailgate rubber tube.Burnt /overheated wiring in multi connector behind n/s/r parcel shelf support trim and also behind n/s/f footwell plastic trim.Could be a relay fault,but unfortunately it is not replaceable as it is part of the fuse/central relay box.hth

Thanks for the comprehensive response, unfortunately the resolution of most of these is beyond my son! I would guess that, as the switch doesn't seem to be switching it on (as opposed to it being switched on and not working), it is probably a problem with the relay box. Presumably I could source another complete fuse/relay box from a breakers? I'll get my lad to check the other easier things like wiring & connectors.
