Should be in the engine compartment Fuse Box, lift the bonnet, small rectangular box close to the battery,
also under the lid should display a diagram of each relay and its purpose :)

I changed the reverse light switch a while back, couldn't find an how to anywhere so put something together. Hope it helps anyone who's looking at changing the part.
