is this a 114/115 model? or a 123 model. if its the latter model, the gp relay should be located behind the driver side headlight. hope this helps.

if it is a w114/115 , i am assuming the configuration is the same as a w115 1976 300D. the glow plug relay is located almost on top of the steering column. remove the lower cardboard trim panel from under the steering column. then remove the plastic steering column cover. the relay sits about 1/2 above the steering column held by a bracket. the wiring diagram and part number is facing you so you should be able to find the part number easily. if you cant read it you could contact german star, they are very good at finding you the correct part number often very, very quickly.

you did not specify your problem but the relay is not often the cause of your possible glow problem. look around this forum and others for many pages of help, or you could message directly and I can personally help you with the trouble shooting process if you cant get a good mental image from others posts.

The offer stands of anyone else having difficulty with their glow plug system

A very good primer which will help you get your head around the relatively simple electrical system:
