I'm planning to change the canister thats above the rear end.What do i need to do first to change out the canister? Do i need to drop the rear end or do i need to unbolt one of the rear axle? I need to know which side left or right axle? Also, if i have to unbolt one of the axle from the rear end,once i unbolt from the rear end,do i also need to unbolt the brake rotors and the calipers too for the axle to drop down? Please help!!!

How many miles do you have on the car as this should be covered by a waranty up to like 70,000 miles?
I changed my gas cap and did a fuel injection cleaning and fuel treatment. i then resetted the ecu and the same cod cam back. the cod is po441 or 446 usually.
take a look at this, maybe it might help you:
P0446 indicates there's excessive vacuum in the fuel tank/evaporative emissions control system. In most cases, significant diagnosis is required to find the cause. There are four basic types of problems that I've seen cause this code:
1. Faulty fuel tank pressure sensor, causing the ECM to believe there's vacuum present when in actuality there is none.
2. Purge control valve stuck open, applying vacuum to tank at all times.
3. Blockage preventing the tank from properly venting. This could be due to a plugged charcoal canister or canister filter, a stuck closed canister close valve, or any sort of blockage in the evaporative system.
4. Liquid fuel blocking one of the vapor hose to the fuel tank pressure sensor, preventing the sensor from properly reading the pressure in the tank.
I just want to inform you all that my mechanical found a way to get the canister out without taking the axle out. By drop the suspension and support it with a dead man lift. You take the screws off of the canister for the bracket and it will come right out
