Hi guys,

My rear demister has stopped working. I checked the fuse and the connections. All seem okay. Most likely it's the relay that's gone. Unfortunately, it seems the relays are very difficult to source. Online searches have proven fruitless.

Before I start randomly calling Vauxhall garages, has anyone purchased one recently and if so could you say where?

The relay is an OMRON G8HE-1A7T-R2-DC12.

Cheers

Mike

Someone was just asking about this recently. I bought one from Mouse.com, expensive as it had to be shipped from the States but is now out of stock and appears to be obsolete. If I remember correctly the previous poster had managed to order one through Vauxhall. I can't remember reading the outcome.

Maybe a specialist retailer like RS can source it direct from OMRON, or even suggest an equivalent product.

I think this is what you want. uk.farnell.com have 145 in stock, £4.24 +vat & postage I expect.
Panasonic CM1A-12V
order code 1423141 (put this number in their search box & it'll pop up).
You'll see a link to the datasheet, please download & double-check it's a match! This is a few mm smaller in size, but I think the pins are the same Micro ISO layout & dimensions, so should do just fine.

Thanks folks for your replies.

Charles Hurst in Belfast came back to me saying they have no stock and there is no stock the UK warehouse. They were able to place a special order in from Germany. They said approx 2 weeks. Cost was £34.67 including VAT and shipping to address in NI.

The alternative from HandyAndy is an excellent Plan B.

As an aside, is there a special method of removing the relays? I tried to take mine out yesterday but no way would it come out. Moved a mm or two out but that was it. Didn't want to force it in case there is a catch or something I'm not aware of.

As far as I am aware it is just a simple plug in. This could be a sign that a terminal has corroded and is sticking In which case if you can get it out and clean up the terminals it will still work.

Thanks!

Just used a pair of pliers and it came out okay. Terminals were clean. Hopefully the new relay will do the trick!

I received my new relay today.

The GM part number is 19118937 should someone need to order one in the future. A Google search shows it available from suppliers in the US.
