    Noisy carbon canister

    Has anyone else got a noisy carbon cannister, I know that they tick alot but mine seems to be pretty loud now (don't recall it before) it can be heard loudly with the bonnet down - is this normal???

    I had it off the other week and it didn't seem blocked?

    mines loud as feck on the zlet - my old 8v one never made a noise

    think its just typical vxl luck of the draw.... u could always try changing it for a one u know is quiet - but whether or not that would work i dont know...

    Aye, all the astra one's are the same

    I put the quiet one that was one my old 1.8 onto the ZLET and it's just as noisey as the old one, must be a lot more unburnt fuel kicking about on the LET's...lol

    What sort of noise do these actually make and what do they look like?

    They tick and they're up back left of the engine bay, clipped onto the back of the airbox, just infront of the suspension turret.

    Do they have a habit of being noisy, then going quiet again? May explain the noise I had in my car (Z16XE) for a month or two that suddenly disappeared last month!
