    No, Ravi. What you posted is a Fuse. The AC relay is slightly broader (not so thin) from top view. The Fuse has only 2 plug pins, while the Relay has multiple plug pins. The AC Relay location in Fuse Box - It's located at the bottom side of the fuse box (bottom side means towards radiator grill side and not towards windshield side).

    I forgot to take the pic yday. I'll try to take a pic today & post.

    Thanks for the pic Amit. I guess removing the relay and driving on is not going to hamper anything.

    Thanks, Amit. I find smaller and bigger fuses inside the fuse boxes. But, nothing has been mentioned about the bigger fuses apart from relays in the Linea owner handbook. Similarly, the diagram confuses us by showing a non-existent F20. My SA at Concorde Motors, Mysore Road, Bangalore, suggested that I buy atleast one spare fuse in each amperage before my Leh expedition and I bought two in each amperage. I have bigger fuses in 30 A and 40 A. But, there is no mention about these big brothers and the slots are devoid of any details in this diagram. FIAT India could have given us some spare fuses in the vacant slots. Even my previous vehicle MS Versa had some.:(

    Even I was surprised to find that there were no spare fuses in the box. I bought some over the counter from the TASC during the first service. Came in very handy when the aftermarket horn kept blowing the fuse repeatedly. Some of the empty slots are probably for other electrical features which GP has in other markets but not available in India.

    Only couple of months back I got 3M engine coating done. It now just requires a swipe with a cloth.



    Since I have a Surat trip coming up, wanted to sort out coolant leakage issue. Sent the driver to Wasan. Its overflowing with cars. It did not commit but finally did it. Changed the leaked coolant hose. Not covered under warranty :( bill is RS. 994 I still have not seen the car. Just meeting the sriver and car in 5 minutes.
