1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
2. Pull rearward on the front edges of the center carpet panel and disengage the push pin retainers.
3. Remove attaching screw and carpet panel.
4. Disconnect the relay electrical connector.
5. Remove relay retaining bolt and the relay.
6. Reverse procedure to install.

I am having a hard time finding any information on where the fuel pump relay is located on a 94 mercury tracer 1.9L my owner Manuel gave the location for the 1.8 but not that 1.9. Any advice on where I could find it would be great.

I am looking for it because I want to replace the fuel filter, is there another way to depressurize the fuel system other than the relay?

Thank you in advance for the help

Yep just turn off the car, get a rag and on top of the engine you will find the fuel rail, all 4 injectors are on it. You will see a schraeder valve, looks like a tire valvestem, unscrew the cap put the rag around it and press the stem!

Hello, the location may depend on the litre size of your engine? The 1.8 shows to be in the fuse box underhood. The 1.9 shows, behind instrument panel, center. Sorry, I don't have a picture.
