Tyco V23084-C2001-A303 Relay
Only $15 each plus $3 shipping within the US or $6 shipping outside the US.

These relays are used in almost all GM5 modules found in the E46 3-series (except in some late 2004 and 2005 cars). Two relays used for the power door locks and should be replaced in pairs. Two relays are used for the rear windows, one per window.

It is also used on some of the E46 memory seat modules like the 52.10-7 019 255 which can be found in 2002 and later convertibles with the memory seat option. Not sure which other cars use this module. The memory seat module uses 4 of these relays

Before you purchase some notes on replacing the relays yourself

These relays are not in sockets. They are soldered into the board and are very difficult to get out. If you have a little Radio Shack soldering iron and think you're going to get these relays out, think again! The copper planes suck away the heat faster than a lot of these little irons can put out. Also the solder used is RoHS or lead free which melts at a higher temperature, about 422°F compared to eutetic tin-lead which melts at 361°F. This makes it very difficult to get all the solder out of the holes. Thinking of using solder wick? Forget it. It's not going to work.

Don't believe me. I can give you names and email addresses of people who tried it themselves and messed up their modules. I have created another web page on some common problems encountered removing these relays.

The front window relays are even harder to get out than the door lock relays. The old relays need to be removed by someone who is skilled at desoldering.
