I changed the one under the car. It's mounted near the evap. canister (big black box) thats right next to the gas tank. It's very easy to get to, no need to take the evap canister out. Mine was so rusty, that the bracket snapped of when I tried to take it off. I ened you using a tie wrap to hold the new one in place. It's still working today. You should be able to use the existing hoses and clamps.
Your best beat is to take the part out, and bring the part to a parts counter to get the replacment.
When you take the valve out, you will see how bad these rust out. The price was under $30 from Toyota. Toyota parts counters are all over the place with pricing. What cost $3 at one counter can cost you $9 the next town over. I see this everytime I need an OEM Toyota part.
