Can I Remove or Discard This ??

Hi,
Advice Please
1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis UK Spec
Just fitted an aftermarket front bumper o n one side hanging down their is a canister. I think its an evap canister with a charcoal filter inside but I might be wrong.
Can I remove it and just join the two pipes together or should I block them off?

Can I relocate it some where and where have you guys moved it too?

Could I mount it on its side or dose it have to be upright as it is now.

Also so you can see some before and after pictures.

Just turn it sideways, and it'll be out of sight. I believe you need zip ties to hold it sideways.

That's the vacuum reservoir for the cruise control and the heater control. Kinda need that, mate.

As said above, turn it on its side and zip tie it up out of the way.

It's the charcoal canister for the emissions system, not necessary to run the vehicle, but it may be illegal to modify emissions systems in your area.

Most people either zip tie it sideways or move it into the engine compartment.

The function of the emissions charcoal canister is to pull fumes from your gas tank, filter them, then burn them through your intake. Don't just block the lines off because the line from the tank also functions as a breather and w/o one your tank will collapse as the fuel pump pulls the fuel along with air out.

Look at the 3rd photo in this post titled "Relocate charcoal canister" and seems Technohead found a real good solution in just making some alterations while moving the canister up/over. This will also still comply with any emission standards you have in the UK. Good luck.
