Relay is the square box under the bonnet screwed to the bulkhead, just above where the dipstick is.

Check your headlight earths are Ok before touching the relay as well as the fuses including those in the relay.

Hi there is fueses under the silver box that is fitted to the bulkhead check them
and the plugs that fir to the back of the lamps and as som one as sed check the earths for a quick
Way to check is run a wire from the — side of battery and earth the lights direct
If that works put new wire from the back of the lights as some times the earth screws can rust
If I can help you eney more just inbox me BOD
