    What to do with a noisy carbon canister

    My 52 reg 1.8 coupe has a noisy carbon canister left over from having its airbox replaced by a previous owner. I plan on refitting a standard airbox in the nearish future, so will this quieten it down, or is it just knackered full stop?

    If I remove until I refit astandard airbox will it cause me any problems? I don't think it's doing anything with the airbox removed as it is at the moment.

    Is there a way to fix them? If not, am I best sourcing from a scrappers when I go to get a standard airbox or am I best going to vaux for a new one? Likely cost if so.

    Cheers

    carbon canister does not make any noise, but the pruge valve on the drivers side does and is supposed to

    Sorry, thats what I mean then. Is this supposed to vent to atmosphere or back into the system. Silly question maybe, but I have no experience with these cars and someone has ripped all of the pipework out of this area, and it really is excessively noisy.

    should vent the vapours back in through the throttle body mate, so in essence it is an enclosed system
