40amp F1 Relay ?

After the recent failure of my flasher relay, I decided I should swap out my F1 relay as its the old 30amp and is 12 years old now.

I understand there is an updated 50amp one (which is incompatible with the 30 amp socket).

In my search came across this

40amp F1 relay

Should I:

1. Just replace with an existing 30amp (they are 3 times the price of the 50amp)
2. have my base socket updated to 50amp (what is the part number for this ?)
3. Give this 40amp relay a go as it connects into the 30amp socket

I do not know the guy selling this relay. You have Tyco relay V23134-B57-X203 in her right now. I upgraded mine to another 30 amp relay with hardened contacts that is V23134-B57-X266 sold by Juri. I know Juri's relays work, no clue on this guy's, so you pay your money and take your chances. Mine has been working great for around 2 years.

This is Juri's E-Bay ad for a V23134-B57-X152, which is a better relay than the X203, but not as good as an X266. Contact Juri through his E-Bay ad and see if he has an X266 he can sell you. Should be the same price as the X152.

Shot in the dark on the 40 amp relay because I have never heard of that one.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Thanks Terry,

yes i found the 40amp odd, hence wanted it to check it out amongst the knowledgeable ones

I have sent Juri a message to find out if he has any x266. If not, I am sure the x152 will even be a better option than my original one !

If he does not have the X266, the X152 is available through BMW parts online stores for less than $25. Let me know if you need the part number. For that price, you can buy two X152s.

Hi Guys,


Should this relay be changed every x years as a precautionary measure?


Best Regards


Will

Will- Probably every 4-5 years, but who knows? I think X-266 is probably longer lasting.
