Aha!  And that would be INSIDE the car, as Audi tends to put the ECU inside
the car as well, right? ;-)

To minimize/eliminate current leaks and prolong the life of relays in
regions of high humidity or where roads are routinely salted, they should
ideally be put inside the car or otherwise weathersealed.  The PO of my car
did not do so and I know this will be an issue that needs to be
remedied --what a mess!
