Ok Russ... I read you loud and clear. Yes I am a DIY and can solder the contacts if necessary. I just finished pulling out the two relays (behind the cover). One says "Klima" which I assume is Climate Control and the other says "Kickdown". I cleaned up the contact pins with electrical cleaning solvant and put everything back together again. I looked to see if there is a way to open the "Cigarette pack" but it appeared to be fairly well sealed... I did not see any obvious seams to open... but then again that was before I read your post.
I'm not certain I have the right relay so far. I have a suspicion that there are two fuel pump relays and that so far I've discovered only the one called the kickdown.
Can anyone confirm that there is or if there is not a second fuel pump relay on the 300E?
