Heated screen not working?
All diag pointing to the relay? I might have your answer.
My diag for my heated screen said the relay was at fault, it was still clicking, just when tested out of the car the HT side was always open circuit.
I got a replacement relay from another car when I bought a front pipe, yet this relay seemed to be broken too.

So prize it open with a screwdriver. I found this in both of the relays:
The solder joint which seems to be broken is for one of the pads of the HT side of the relay, that'll be why it wasn't working then. Resolder the joint and you're back in business.
