Engine coolant fan relay

2006 - 550i - N62TU - Overheats in heavy traffic - no coolant leaks - I believe the coolant fan is intermittent (possible bad relay)
Coolant fan load relay location
What I can tell from the Bentley manual, it is located right side trunk (fan cutoff relay - only applicable as of 3/2007)
** Update - Not applicable to my vehicle per Bentley **

This appears to be the Terminal 30g relay ?? (not sure for what load)

Looks like - for my year - the problem is most likely the temp sensor at radiator outlet or the fan assembly itself. I've already replaced the thermostat w/temp. sensor.
