Fuel Pump Relay/Fuel Pressure Relief

I know that in order to relieve fuel pressure, I have to disconnect the connector from the fuel pump relay. I also know that the fuel pump relay is located somewhere under the steering wheel.

What's the best way to get at it? Do I have to remove any dash panels?

I can't directly answer your question, but if you leave the car parked overnight, fuel pressure should be next to nothing.

Otherwise, on my 97OBW, I would unscrew the access panel in the rear cargo area, unplug the fuel pump wiring harness, start the engine and let it run until it died (if it started at all).
