Coolant Fan Relay

Does anyone know where the coolant fan relay (low) is on a 93 Escort Wagon w/1.9?
It is supposed to be next to the high temp relay and I can't find that either.
The printout from the dealer is so bad neither I nor the parts guy could tell if it was in the engine bay on the firewall or under the dash
He called over a mechanic who owns one of these and he couldn't tell either, and couldn't remember where it was
My Haynes manual has helped me identify almost all of the relays I have found, and the unidentified ones do not match up to the new relay (won't fit)
Anybody out there replaced one of these before?
Thank you

Thank you, I will check there tommorow AM
The fender apron position was not mentioned by any of the above mentioned sources, and I believe there is a plastic cover there, I'll check under it
Also, thanks for the quick reply!
I'll post what I find tommorrow
Thanks again!

Memory not being what it used to be, best as i remember, Ford used the ECC module set-up on most of those cars..It's a "black box" that electrically contains the fan relays, fuel pump relay, Ac compressor relay, ect... When 1 circuit goes bad, you replace the whole thing...

That sounds like $$$!
I have found the fuel pump and AC relays in separate areas so let's hope it's not a black box deal
(although replacing them all at once does eliminate the hunt for one at a time every few months as these cars get older!)

This is true. I also have seen incorrect identification on schematics for locating these relays. Sometimes that box is behind the glove box or near the left front headlight..about 5"square and 1.5in thick with a flat screwed on connector.

Well there it is, front of the fender apron, more like behind the air cleaner assembly, in a black box with other relays and some fuses. The two coolant fan relays are clearly marked, not which is high/low, but one relay is larger so I can guess.
So not only is this printout from the Ford dealer way off,(no wonder the mechanic couldn't remember if it was on the firewall or under the dash-it was neither!), but the relay they gave me won't fit.
I checked w/the Motorsport website and the part# listed is the one they gave me.
I guess it's back to the dealer
This time I can park it, pull the relay, and bring it up to the counter.
Thank you all for your help and advice!
