How exactly do I replace the fuel pump relay on a 1996 Nissan Sentra? Fuel pump has been replaced with an aftermarket Airtex when the car quit and was not pumping fuel; the fuel pump had been making a high-pitched whine anyway. It ran awhile and quit again. The mechanic changed out the coil and it ran (incidental?) A few miles, quit again. Tried pulling a fuel line at filter, didn't hear pump, no fuel came out when turned on. Back together, I hear the pump spin up when the key is turned on but no response when I try to start other than turning over. Now I have a new relay to put in but the best info I can find says it APPEARS to be what I see inside a supporting structure next to the steering column. Protection gets a 10, accessibility an 0.5. Cannot reach both sides of relay to release. Is there another way, or do I have to disassemble the entire dash area and take loose the steering support to get this relay?
