There is a box shaped metal piece

It's the Evaporative Emissions Canister - around $300 for a new one. It's held in place with a couple of small rivets and 2 nuts.

Best Answer

Its not broken or damaged. Its just hanging off. Could it be as easy as screwing it back in?




How would I go about fixing it? Right now it's just bungee corded up.


Coming from a 19 year old girl, how do i go about fixing it? what tools do i need?


Basic tools - It's held in place by 3 rivets and 2 nuts. At the very worst, you'd have to drill out the 3 rivets and replace them with small nuts and bolts. A shop could do it very quickly for about 1/2 hour labor.
