the vent valve is located on the charcoal cannister that is encased in the cannister tray. this is located under the vehicle.
I have included a diagram for you.
here are the manual directions to replace the vent vent valve

  1. Remove the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) canister assembly.
  1. Disconnect the fuel vapor vent-to- EVAPcanister quick connect coupling.
  1. Disconnect the fuel vapor vent valve electrical connector.
  1. Remove the fuel vapor vent valve from the EVAPcanister tray.
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
    • Carry out the Evaporative Emissio

if it is the vent solenoid that you are replacing and not the vent valve than this unit is also located in the cannister tray. only this part plugs direclty into the cannister
here is the diagram for the vent solenoid if that is hw\\what you are replacing. and is identified as #7 in the diagram
