I have a check engine light on, caused by charcoal canister purge valve. What is the location of this valve?

I've been told multiple locations, from under the hood, to inside the gas tank ( that one makes me scratch my head ! )

Do you
have the same problem?

It's connected to the gastank on the right rearinner fender well. You can't see it unless you look under and then maybe not even then. It's connected to a rectangular box like thing.

Thank you So much for your reply, and pretty quick, too !
Found a mechanic who will repalce it for $150.00
The dealership wanted close to 300 !
Wanted to try it myself, but it's not my car, it's my girlfriends, and if I screwed it up, i'd NEVER hear the end of it, lol !
