Default Where is the Starter Relay???

On a 94 Mustang GT, where is the Starter relay? I picked one up at the parts store to replace it and can't find the damn thing anywhere. All references I find say its on the drivers side fender, I see nothing there. Maybe I'm just blind.

THE SELONOID on 94-95 is incorporated down on the starter

I assume I have to remove the whole starter to get to that? Is it just two bolts holding the starter on?

Well the relay didn't fix it. Guess it is probably the solenoid on the starter itself. Of course it couldn't be the easier of the two....

Want to check the starter w/out removing it?....... remove the starter relay from the underhood fuse box, make sure transmission is in neutral, IGN OFF, and place a wire jumper between the relay socket terminals shown below.......

If starter is toggled this way, like MJ said, the clutch switch circuit needs to be checked.

I just did that and it does in fact toggle the starter. How do I test the clutch switch?
