Default Quick relay question..

Does it matter if the Relay is upside down for the ride leveler? I was up in the dash where the relays and fuses on the passenger side and the ride control one was upside down. Odd.. Cause it had the factory electrical tape on the relays.

Is this relay in the relay center (a fixed position) or loose harness wiring that could be orientated in any direction as long as it'* hooked to the relay properly?

The relay is fine. I forgot to mention that the stock electrical tape that goes around them was on there. It'* the ones under the dash on the pass. side.

Corrected.

the orientation of the relays in the passenger footwell doesn't matter , other wise they would be keyed. they are just like a fuse, there is only 2 ways they can go in , and either one is correct.

Ahh got ya. See I looked on the side of the relay and saw the picture of the circuit, and thought they had to go one way.
