It's a spherical shaped plastic thing mounted in the engine bay near the front on the passenger's side. Has two lines going into it. I know it's in the 2nd gens... dont know about any other years.

Thanks.

The evaporator? Is it mounted vertically? Towards the rear of the engine compartment?

Edit: Wait, plastic thing?

What does this do? Mine got crushed in my crash (whoops section). Easily replacable?

The lines going into it looked to be intact - however the canister was obliterated.

edit: posted same time as Daniel.
