    Relay Question

    Do these look they they need to be changed or are they still good? If so where can I get new ones?

    No way to tell from the outside.

      testing them is the most accurate way to determine if they have failed or are still working well:

        While this is absolutely technically true, I would not agree at all with the statement.

        Think of this: every single time that contact inside the relay makes or breaks connection, there's a tiny spark. Every time there's a spark, there's a tiny bit of wear and a tiny carbon deposit left behind.

        The condition of the terminals shows clearly those are very very old. personally, I would not even think about not replacing those, it's main relay, O2 sensor heater and fuel pump. Id say do it.

          Do they work? Yes=put them back in No=change them They have part numbers on them. Google the number and you will get a few thousand places to buy them.

            I would agree with Luke...the terminals look like they have gotten hot, most likely due to corrosion in the relay socket contacts. I would replace them. I've pulled a number of relays out of junkyard BMWs and I haven't seen heat damage to the terminals like that...of course I'm in California where things don't corrode much!
