Default Random question - location of rear wiper relay on BG/BK wagon?

A few years ago I picked up a JDM rear sedan window and wiper setup from JHot on Ebay. That was just the window itself and the wiper motor and mount with the wiring pigtail. A while later I picked up the combination switch from an Outback Limited wagon, so I've got the "good" switch (retains interval front wiper and adds the rear wiper - the base models didn't keep the interval front wipers).

The one thing I appear to be missing, based on reading my Haynes Manual and the FSM, is the rear wiper relay. So, I'd like to head to the junkyard and get one from a wagon, but I don't know where the thing is. Both the Haynes Manual and the FSM refer to it, and have electrical diagrams showing you how to test the relay, but I have yet to find a drawing that shows where on the car it's located.

If it comes down to it, I'll just start pulling all the interior panels on the junkyard car to follow the wiring. But I'm hoping maybe someone has had to troubleshoot/repair their rear wiper and thus knows where the relay is located. That would save me some time and effort when I head to the junkyard.

So, anyone know?

Thanks,
Pat Olsen

Nearly-8-year thread bump!!

I did find the relay, long ago - just did as I said I would do, went to the junkyard and started following the wiring. As I recall it was along the passenger rocker sill somewhere towards the back seat area.

A new question... Did any of the Outbacks come with a variable rear wiper? Or are they all just on/off/spray?

My 05 controller has slow and fast speeds and has reverse lights inputs, but is not infinitely variable.

Good to know. I may see about snagging one if a newer Legacy or Outback appears in the junkyard.
