The carbon canister is actually under the hood of the vehicle. Here is a picture of the HVAC system for a 99 Camery.

Iam referring to the Vapor seperator. The shop caled it a charcoal canister. Said they smoke tested it and it was bad causing code P0446. Said it would cost $680 to replace. Will I need to remove the muffler to get this bad boy out

thank I may be able to save some money if I can do myself

You will need to remove the fuel tank but you should be able to work it around the exhaust system.

Let me know if you have other questions.
