Post 1985 280ce euro window relay, Where is it?

Hello, I recently added a 1985 280ce euro gas burner to my collection and and having big problems with window wiring. I discovered when removing interior for complete cleaning, that the wires from the left side back coupe window motor were cut and not attached to anything. At the switch plug, someone had attched wires to the black and green motor leads and run in back to the front kick plate where it was spliced into other black and green wires. Stay with here, I unhooked the patch wire and reconnected the green and black wires at the front kick plate together. Now the rear window swithch works the front window. My neighbor/mechanic is convinced the relay is bad as there is no power to main window fuse in fuse box (fuse located upper right corner of fuse box) We cannot find the window relay, or it has been cut out of system? maybe, So, does anyone know where the window relay(s) are located on this car? Not in the engine bay like on diesels, or by steering column. Are they behind instrument panel? Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
