Fuel Pump Relay on 1989 F150

Hi,
Just bought an '89 F150 with a 4.9 automatic. The previous owner told me it needs a fuel pump relay. Can anyone tell me where it is located? I found a block with wiring running to it behind the breather in the driver's side fender wheel well. Is this is it, and if so, how do I access it? If not, I would surely appreciate someone letting me know!
Thanks!

On the 5.0L the Fuel Pump Relay is located under the plastic shield at the air cleaner support bracket.

I am not sure if the 4.9 is in the same location or not, but it might be.

Hope this helps.

Thank you! This confirms what I thought. Now I just have to figure out how to access it. Does the relay just unplug? Thanks again!

It is a tight fit, but yes the relays just plug in. I find they are tough to remove. Maybe someone else has a "trick" to getting them unplugged a little easier?

Fuel relay swi

It is behind the air cleaner under a black holder and it is the green one (if it is not after market) and the easiest way I have found to pull them out is with a small flat head screw driver or a flat feeler gauge slid up the side of the relay. Facing the vehicle the clip should be on the right side and they are not easy to pull out.
