Post 2006 Malibu LT 4door Vapor Canister Vent Solenoid Location

Got a 06 Malibu 3.5L LT and I got a P0449 code. I had it checked at O'Reilly's and it shows up as P0449 CHEVROLET - Evaporative Emission Vent Valve Solenoid Malfunction Intermittent. I have replaced the gas cap and now the dealer is telling me that it is the Vapor Canister Vent Solenoid. Purchased the part for $25 but can not find the exact location. Can someone help me!

Right rear of fuel tank, close to where the fuel fill pipe goes into the tank. Have to lower the tank, not remove it, to get access to it. Has a red two wire connector going to it. It snaps on the tank bracket, don't muscle it off. Before you replace the valve, just check the wiring by the EVAP canister, right side of the fuel tank, there's a wiring harness that comes out forward of the canister. Make sure that harness is not damaged.
