Fuel pump relay Manual gear box

Wanted to change the fuel pump relay on my 260E 1988 EURO.

Dealer whats to sell me one that fits on an automatic gear box.

Is it possible to use a FPR for an automatic gear box instead of one for a manual gear box,

What should I do with two contacts to which is plugged the kickdown, leave them open or shunt them?

It should plug in, don't worry about the kickdown connections. They can play like they are kicking down all day, nobody will care.

Thanks Stevefbl

If I understand correctly I can buy one FPR for 260 E with automatic gearbox and use it on my 260E with manual gearbox

Have a good day

Those pins on the rely are use for the automatic kick down cutoff; rev limiter, speed governor. On automatics, in kick down mode if the engine should over rev, the fuel pump relay would deactivate the kick down relay in some models. It has no effect on a manual Trans. it is safe to use.
