Default Solar panel relay location

Hi

Can someone please help me locate the 385 solar panel relay?
My fans does not work, and have read that 99% of the time, the problem is the relay, that controls if the solar panel or battery should be used.
Ive checked the footwell relays, which have 2 "rows" of relays in the top in some kind of tray, and beneath there is one row of relays bolted to the frame.
But none of them are marked 385......

Are there another location of relays in the D2?

Thanks
Kim

Well, actually 99% of the time (especially with a solar sunroof), it's the fan motor using up its factory brushes >>

Here's the relay, if you car's a 2001 - 03 >>
