It does indeed show the relay as being under the fuse box, looks like you need to remove the battery tray, then slide it out.

Have had a chance to take a look for the glow plug relay / control unit; and I found it...
These instructions are from memory, and are for my 07 vRS Estate (your mileage may vary)
You need to remove the battery, and the front Â½ of the battery shroud, it has 2 small clips at the bottom and then slides upwards. The relay is located under the under bonnet fuse box, and slides out (towards the engine), the relay can then be unclipped. My relay has the following part numbers on it: â€œ0 281 003 038â€, â€œ905â€, â€œ038 907 281 Dâ€ and â€œRB6â€.
Hope this helps anyone else looking for their relay. I've ordered a new one, but as I removed the battery it was showing signs of bulging at the sides so I'll be replacing that as well when the relay arrives...
