Hiding the EVAP Canister

1997-2002 Jeep Wranglers

July, 2007

There are openings into this hidden compartment from the side and bottom, but they really don't provide ideal access. The EVAP canister fits best with the hose fittings facing downward. I need a larger opening at the bottom than the existing small round hole.

After a couple of test fits I decided to cut a rectangular hole in the bottom of the compartment. The edges from the new hole are a bit sharp. I don't want to worry about them cutting my hoses, so I will slice some vinyl hose lengthwise to slip over the sharp edge.
