Default '64 Power Window Relay Specific Location?

Is the '64 power window relay located under passenger side hood hinge down deep? Thanks!

The power window relay is usually near the center of the firewall. The convertible top relay is down lower and closer to the spring if I remember right.

Clarification, my car is a convertible, so the power window relay for the convertible is under the hinge, yes? Thanks John!

The power window relay and the convertible top relay look completely different. The power window relay has a screw terminal in the middle. The convertible top relay has four posts with a rubber connector over them. If you want to email me a picture of your firewall I can point you in the right direction.

It's starting to come back to me now. The power window relay on a '64 is on the passenger side below the cowl drain tube behind the spring. It's a real pain to get to.

Default power window relay

Put it back exactly where it belongs. if you try and cheat, like me, for an easier spot on the fire wall and the hood hinge contacts the hot post on the relay you will have a wiring fire... like me.
