    G60 carbon canister removal

    Guys, I know this can be binned from the engine bay of a G60, but just wanted to see what needs to be removed and what needs to be blanked

    Does anyone have any pictures or a guide on removal of it?

    Thanks

    Basically there are two pipes that go the the throttle body (large and small) and and another on the front of the inlet manifold plumbed into the servo vacuum pipe than need removed and blanked off. The easiest way would be to cut small sections off the original CC pipework and block them with suitable sized bolts. There is also a breather pipe coming from the fuel tank which needs to breath. Some put a little filter on it and route it underneath the airbox. Theoretically it could be plumbed into the bottom of the airbox too and just recirculated that way. There was an diagram floating about the web for it but can't seem to find it now. Probably lost with all the rest of the photobucket images I assume.

    Cheers for the help guys.
    Have removed it all now.
    Small vacuum on the back of the throttle body called. Larger one on the side of the throttle body called. The one that's on the front of the inlet (in the middle) has been called off.
    My only question is the one that's on the brake servo line that loops into the inlet manifold on the end, is that to now be capped off completely or looped back in?

    That should read capped, not called. That's predictive text for you and me not checking.
    I will get a pic up tomorrow when it's light again, but I am left with an open vacuum coming from the shutoff valve. Wasn't sure if I cap it or loop it back in somewhere
    When started the idle shoots up to 2k now so it's obvious that it can't stay open due to the air leak.

    I'll grab a picture.

    Thanks

    This is the one. I just cap this one off?

    I've also got a vacuum line that seems to run right to the back of the back, maybe the dash MFA vacuum?

    Cap it off or replace with new piece of hose m8
