Take the air filter off, its right there in front of the fire wall

Actually left to the fuel filter looks like a starter solenoid for a Ford

They are both very bad at this!!! Horriable answers. Yes it does look like a starter relay on the 2002 model years. What they frogot to inform you is that their is 2 relays just left of the fuel filter housing that are almost identical. Ones the glow plug relay and other is the IAT heating element that screws into the "intake" right by the hot side charge tube on the passenger side. Its main purpose was to minimize white smoke on start up and chances are it doesn't even work anymore so ignore it. The glow plug relay has a large black with orange trace wire on the large terminal. It comes from the starter relay that is mounted on the inside of the passenger side fender by the hood strut. It will have constant 12v on that terminal and with the koeo you should hear a click and the 12v if operating properly should show up on the other large post within a second of turning koeo. If not then you can suspect the relay for and open internally and replace and retest. Very common and a good start for a hard start when cold diagnosis. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Would your rover 75 cdt cut out if you had a faulty glow plug relay?

I note the relay (part No NCL100040) is called an "ignition and glow plug heater relay". The 75 will usually start if you turn the key before the glow plugs have heated, therefore the glow plugs are probably only needed for cold starts. Glow plugs are not needed when a diesel engine is hot. The "ignition" reference may mean that some other circuit is controlled by this relay (obviously there is no conventional ignition as it is a diesel). FYI The part is also used on the Range Rover TD6 post 2002 An internet search suggest the cam sensor can cause starting problems and fault codes similar to a faulty glow plug relay.
