Should be 2 lines coming up from under the car. One is the return from the tank and the other is the fuel feed line.

One feeds the fuel rail, and one goes to the FPR to control fuel pressure.

The charcoal canister is connected to the bottom of the throttle body (if i can remember correctly).

The 'e' car is set up a bit different than the 'i' cars.

The same thing just happened to me, in my case it was the brake line. There is a thread on this from a couple of days ago. I took my car to Top Series Auto, ask for David:

Top Series Auto
50 Silver Star
Toronto, ON M1V 4W3
(416) 291-0770

They're at Midland and Finch in Scarborough. It was $300 for the brake line, and $300 for the fuel lines (2)-Total $600. Other places quoted me up to $400 per line so it was worth getting it towed there ($50 for hook up and $2.50 a km). Be prepared to spend a little extra-a mechanic may find some other repairs while it is torn apart.

Sorry to highjack the thread, I just dealt with this this week so I thought I should answer the specific question.

I did all my brake lines before, not very fun. Fuel lines are relatively easy, except where they go up over the tank...
