Customer Question

Hi my name is ***** *****. I'm about to remove/replace the fuel evap canister on my 2004 Honda accord. Would there be a diagram somewhere to reference?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My local repair shop did a smoke test and said it had a small leak. I've decided to do the whole canister
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Mechanics for Honda generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

When looked at the canister last night, I saw many different types of connections for the hoses. Are there any special tricks for removal of any of these?
Expert:  Honda-Man replied 1 year ago.

Not really, some just pull off and one(large vapor hose) has a tab that you depress to release. Might need to pry the rubber hoses off with a screwdriver? Pretty straight forward.

Thanks, Honda-Man
