Above the Relay Panel is the Auxiliary Relay Panel. Has thirteen positions in it.
6 across the top, 7 across the bottom.
Across the bottom the Glow Plug Relay is the fourth one over from the left. It is Number 10.

You have to replace the defective glow plug. You can test the glow plug without the test light. Just put a wire on the bolted end of the glow plug and connect this to the battery (+) terminal. Then, put a wire around the body of the glow plug and connect this to the battery (-) negative terminal. Hold at this position for a minute or less. Good glow plug will heat up.
As far as the wiring schematics, I will just describe
it. Your ignition switch is connected to the positive
terminal of the battery by way of the fuse in the fuse
box. From the switch it goes to a timing relay before
going to the glow plug terminals. The glow plug body
is screw mounted to the engine block which serves
as the negative terminal. So, as you switch your
ignition, it heats up the glow plug enough to give a
combustion of the atomized fuel in the cylinder piston
of your car causing it to run.

If you have replaced the glow plugs....replace glow plug harness. If code reappears, replace glow plug controller.
FYI: VW numbers the glow plugs backwards. IE: #1 cylinder next to the timing belt cover is number #4 glow plug...so your #2 is actually #3 on the engine.
