You will find two or three relays, depending on equipment fitted to your car, up under the dash on the driver's side behind the fuse panel. The fuel pump relay is on the right, probably black in colour but sitting in a white base. A quick test without dismantling anything is to put your finger on the relay and switch the ignition on. You should feel a click from the relay.

Have you checked that fuse #13 is OK?
