E46 Fuel Tank Pressure Valve R&R

Hi, I have an 03 325xi and need to replace the fuel tank pressure valve. its under the intake manifold at the front of the engine, behind the power steering reservoir. Has anyone changed this? Have any "easy" ways of getting to it without relocating the power steering? Thanks.

I've got the new fuel tank pressure valve installed. The only item required to move is the air filter housing. Remove the two 10mm bolts, loosen the hose clamp at the air flow sensor, disconnect the electrical for the air flow sensor, and the entire air filter housing will lift out. There is another wiring harness below the air sensor, just remove the grommet and set aside. With the air box out of the way the fuel tank pressure valve is front and center. It was a really easy exchange.
