The fuel relay is in the same spot it is in on 1st gens. Under the hood on the passenger side there is 2 relays. One is the fuel pump relay. I forget which one.

I own a 95 as well. Fuel pump relay is under the hood. Fuse box is under the dash, but the relay is under the hood.

Look by the AC evaporator. They're in that general area, nowhere near our fuse boxes.

Don't need to access the relay to change the filter. Could always just pull the fuse to disable the pump if that is what you are looking to do.
