What is that black bottle on my Xantia?

Post by rodrigoareal » 23 Aug 2002, 07:28

I wonder if someone can tell me what is this little black "bottle-like" thing on my 1997 Xantia SX 2.0i (just beside the battery).
It has two rubber roses connected on it.
I just found out that one of these roses is broken off, probably since I bought the car, but I don't know what problem is this causing.
The car seems ok, though.
Thanks anyone.

its the charcoal filter, i belive it's something to do with the emissions of the car. if anyone knows otherwise please let me know on the forum.
