Can barely stick my head in there. Didn't see anything like the relay I have in my hand. I doubled checked and it is the proper relay. There was even a photo of it. Can someone please point out which one if the fuel pump relay? Or directions as to where to put my hand to find it?

Your picture you posted I believe is looking from "under" the dash looking up. You need to remove the glovebox to access the fuel pump relay, and go through the hole the missing glovebox gives you.

No sweat, Steve.
Just to clarify, you just need to remove the "box" part of the glovebox, the inner part, not the lid or cover. There are I thing 4 push in type fastners that secure the "box" into the dash, then you can pull the box out of the dash and have access to the FP and Klima relays.

Steve,

Been there done that. Just to add to Gilly's instructions, the relays are against the firewall and the fuel pump relay doesn't look like the little silver one from the 450. It is a black box to the far left and right behind the idle speed relay. You need to pull the idle speed relay first an the the fuel pump relay. Good luck.

Peter

Got it back together, it feels like I have 30% more power could the bad relay give low voltage causing the pump to put out less pressure? Thank you guys. Steve
