1990 Mercury Cougar Question: fuel pump relay

 

Question

I apologize for the year I put in but didn't have my year of car. Mine is a 1988 Mercury Cougar not a 1990. I am trying to find the 2nd fuel pump relay in my 1988 Cougar. I have found the one on the passenger side fender but can't locate the 2nd one. Does anyone know where it is located? I was told the 2nd one was either around the firewall or the fuse box & I can't locate it. Can anyone help me?

    According to the Repair manual, there is but 1 Fuel Pump relay for your Mercury. It is above the Right Rear Wheel Well. There is an EEC relay that also is involved with a bit of the fuel pump operation, that is behind the glove box.
