What box is underneath my 3008 2010?

Post by jakes »

Hi, I saw a box hanging down the left side of my 2010 3008, its next to the exhaust and close to the petrol tank, connected to a thin and thicker tube. The fixing bolt was out, and a steel plate covered it partly, what size bolt can I buy to fix it again?

It may be the fuel vapour absorber. Pop your VIN (automasked on post submission) up as the are are a lot of variants of this engine. and I'll have a chack.

Yes it's the fuel vapour cannister as I mentioned. But beware there are lots of different parts for these on the 3008 according to engine variant, so if thinking of replacing it make sure you match the part number up from the old one.
