Do you have to have vacum hose and or be able to close off a hose when changing the Charcoal cartrige and or the evap vent valve... all these parts are above the spare tire. i can get to them easily...not sure if it is as simple as removeing a part and replaceing it with the new part.

    It should be as simple as pulling off the old vacuum hoses and pushing on the hoses onto the new components but some newer evap systems use what they call quick disconnect connections they require a special tool to remove mostly newer cars).
