Where is the Ebox located under the hood. please help

Hi,

After a few test I have found that my Aux fan is not kicking in when the engine heats up. it only comes on when the AC is turned on. from what I know, the Aux fan was meant to come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature. My next step is to check the relay for it in the Ebox but don't know where it is located.

Thanks in advance

On Aussie cars it's under the LHS/passenger side air filter box. The brake master cylinder is under the RHS air filter box. Opposite to LHD cars. You have to remove the white plastic cover to get to the relays, computers etc.
