Default 91 Accord main relay locaton

I have a 91 Honda Accord Wagon. I have the famous problem of the car not
starting on hot days. I have done the other things recommended except the
Main Relay. I have now bought the Main Relay but don't know where it is
located. Can someone tell me where the Main Relay is located in this car?
Thanks.

It helps to have the new one in your hand when you're on the
left side of the dash, near the driver's usual knee
location, trying to spot it. Alternatively, maybe the
pictures and photos at the following sites will help:

http://techauto.te.funpic.org/civicrelay.php


http://www.marklamond.co.uk/tech-hon...main-relay.htm


http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/mainrelay.html

Lot of folks say just pulling the guts of the main relay
out, and leaving the outer casing bracketed in place, makes
life easier.



The dash does not come apart for this. You just have to
reach somewhat up under it. Kinda tricky to get out, but
plenty of do-it-yourselfers and rookies have succeeded at
it.

Above the driver's knees - IIRC there is a module to remove from underneath
it. As Elle says - a bit frustrating but I've done worse. It really is
easier to pull the guts out of the relay, because those mounting nuts
(bolts?) are even less accessible than everything that comes before.

----------------------------
Like Mike said, pull the guts out the bottom of the relay, being sure
battery is disconnected. Look at new relay to see how it can come out
the bottom. WAY easier. Same for DRL relays on Odyssey. (same problems
too) Bad solder.
