Indeed, I had to remove the four white plastic screws (top 2 hidden by small plastic covers) to loosen the airbag enough so I can reach the stupid extra metal screw that held the left plastic cover (see the 2 holes side by side top right).
YOU have even to remove the OBD plug because it hides the lower right plastic screw.
I did not reinstall the last metal screw for plastic cover since it is held by the top left plastic screw anyway..so next time, this is the only one I'll have to unscrew.
By the way, the relay was OK...after checking the diagram, I noticed the pwr window relay coil is energized by the rear wiper circuit....and indeed this rear wiper fuse was shot....for no reason I can see now...I'll check for that later. ANd it has been so long I was annoyed to have to turn the key ON to energize the windows....I have replaced the relay with a direct permanent "strap"
so windows work at all times...just like the door locks.
