Do you actually have a replacement alternator relay or are you just searching for one? I am not sure we even have one and I don't have the time to check at the moment.

If you have a replacement relay look in these locations:
1) There are a few fuses and relays located in the trunk with the battery.
2) More fuses in the glove compartment but I'm not sure if there are any relays in there.
3) The bulk of the relays and modules are located under the hood in a large plastic box on the drivers side of the engine bay.

How old is your battery? Did you get it checked when they changed the alternator?
