Ok, my Haynes manual is back at school, so I was looking to get some info.

95 v6.
I was in an accident and a spherical shaped plastic object located around/below the air filter was smashed. I've been told it was the vacuum canister. The two lines going into it seemed to be alright - however the canister itself was in pieces. How hard is it to replace this? Cost? Anything else I should worry about since this was destroyed?

If someone wanted to go take a quick picture of it, so I could make sure I'm asking about the right part - I would be very greatful. My explorer is about 600 miles away from me right now =)
