    The relay is situated behind the front bumper in your drivers side...

    But, but, but... Check glowplugs with at potentiometer first...
    I had the same fault in my old v6 cdti and is came down to one faulty glowplug... The reading should be 1,0 Ohm on the glowplugs..

    What a potentiometer?

    I have checked voltage and resistance on the ones I can get to using digital multi meter an they seem ok.

    There's 2 I couldn't easily get to so obviously I need to check them to.

    How much where the glow plugs if you font mind me asking?

    Well I've found fault. Something I somehow missed when checking glow plugs other night.
    A bolt off one of brackets in engine had somehow come out and was sitting next to glowplug and obvisously creating a short to earth.

    Bolt removed an returned to it's bracket an fault clear
