    www.autozone.com , after putting in your car's info, and under the Free
    Repair Guides, then Fuel System, has a pretty good drawing of the main
    relay's location. Figure, 2, lower right-hand part.

    It's near one's left knee but under the left dash cover as seated in the
    driver's seat.

    It's best to have the new relay in your hand and try to match up shapes, if

    IIRC a flashlight was helpful when I changed it on my 1991 Civic LX years

    Reports here are that one does not have to remove the entire relay; the
    "guts" can be removed by itsself, and this will save you a lot of trouble.

    Beg no more. See here:
    Your Civic's will be in the same location as the '91 Integra in question.

    It's actually called the "PGM-FI Main Relay" (AKA "EFI Main Relay". The
    fuel pump is only one of the several things it controls.

    for the 88-91 civic, it's in a slightly different location to that shown
    in the faq's. it's mounted against the door frame, directly above the
    hood release catch. it's a total sob to get at. lie on your back in
    the foot well, with a flash light, & you can see the mounting bolt. the
    faq's will get you close. after that, look for the orange underside you
    can see in this pic

    Thanks very much to jim beam for the update.

    This page:
    has been updated to show the photo he refers to. It now shows three
    different locations for three generations of Civic-based vehicles,
    including the OP's '90 Civic.

    Anyone willing to supply Accord locations will earn my undying admiration
    for at least a few days.
