    Hard to say, on my '05 extended cab, it was at the back of the fuel tank. Another person with an almost identical truck said his was at the front f the tank. Another poster said his was mounted up near the cab and he removed the bed for easier access.

    What is your truck's body style and bed length? That info might help. If you can locate the charcoal canister, you might be able to follow the hose back to the vent

    *edit* does this help? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ptiq9odZ3NE

    I replaced evap solenoid on 05 ECSB with part number CRB 2282567 from NAPA, and replaced the tube with heater hose, new gas cap also and check engine light is off. Less than $50 and about half hour of my time.

    thanks

    Worked like a charm. I have a 2004 GMC Yukon. It really helps to remove the spare tire first. No need for a lift.

    If you are getting a P0442 then you have an air leak on one of your vent lines possibly. I was getting that code and my one vent line off my fuel tank was cracked. I replaced it and the evap solenoid.

    Here are a few pictures of mine.
