Good afternoon.

I attached pictures of the valve for you. It is under the hood drivers side.

REMOVAL
1. Remove the battery tray.

Warning
The evaporative emissions system contains fuel vapor and condensed fuel vapor. Although not present in large quantities, it still presents the danger of explosion or fire. Disconnect the battery ground cable from the battery to minimize the possibility of an electrical spark occurring, possibly causing a fire or explosion if fuel vapor or liquid fuel are present in the area. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.
Do not smoke or carry lighted tobacco or open flame of any type when working on or near any fuel related component. Highly flammable mixtures are always present and may be ignited. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

Caution: Always remove the battery ground cable first and reconnect last when removing both battery cables. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.
