    this is the procedure.

    DISCHARGE FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE
    DISCONNECT CABLE FROM NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL
    REMOVE FUEL TANK PROTECTOR SUB-ASSEMBLY NO.1 (OFF ROAD PACKAGE)
    DISCONNECT FUEL TANK MAIN TUBE AND FUEL TANK RETURN TUBE
    REMOVE FUEL TANK ASSEMBLY
    REMOVE CHARCOAL CANISTER FILTER NO.2
    REMOVE CHARCOAL CANISTER ASSEMBLY
    Disconnect the connector.
    Disconnect the EVAP tube.
    Remove the bolt and 2 nuts, then remove the charcoal canisterDisconnect the fuel tank vent hose.
    Pinch the retainer and pull the fuel tank vent hose connector out of the charcoal canister to disconnect the fuel tank vent hose from the charcoal canister.
    NOTE:
    Remove any dirt and foreign objects from the fuel tank vent hose connector before performing the work.
    Do not allow any scratches or foreign objects on the parts when disconnecting, as the fuel tank vent hose connector has the O-ring that seals the pipe.
    Perform the work by hand. Do not use any tools.
    Do not forcibly bend, twist or turn the nylon tube.
    Protect the disconnected part by covering it with a vinyl bag after disconnecting the fuel tank vent hose.
    If the fuel vent connector and pipe are stuck, push and pull them to release.
    INSTALL CHARCOAL CANISTER ASSEMBLY
    Connect the fuel tank vent hose.
    Align the fuel tank vent hose connector with the pipe, then push in the fuel tank vent connector until the retainer makes a "click" sound to connect the fuel tank vent hose to the charcoal canister.
    NOTE:
    Check that there are no scratches or foreign objects on the disconnected parts of the fuel tank vent connector and pipe before performing the work.
    After connecting the fuel tank vent hose, check that the fuel tank vent hose is securely connected by pulling the quick connector.
    Install the charcoal canister with the bolt and 2 nuts.
    Torque: 20 N.m (204 Kgf.cm, 15 ft.lbf)
    Connect the EVAP tube.
    Connect the connector.
    INSTALL CHARCOAL CANISTER FILTER NO.2
    INSTALL FUEL TANK ASSEMBLY
    CONNECT FUEL TANK MAIN TUBE AND FUEL TANK RETURN TUBE
    REMOVE FUEL TANK PROTECTOR SUB-ASSEMBLY NO.1 (OFF ROAD PACKAGE)
    CONNECT CABLE TO NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL
    Torque: 3.9 N.m (40 Kgf.cm, 35 in.lbf)
    CHECK FOR FUEL LEAKAGE

    the cannister is around 350 and .9 hours to replace.

    your dealer is not far off in price.
