Q: Such as the black tube thing on the passenger side near the front of the bay, is that a charcol canister or something? Can it be removed?

A: That black canister your talking about is the charcol filter for the hvac system. It can be relocated, but personally id keep it in the engine bay somewhere. It is a pretty importiant system, not something you would wanna mess with to much.

ooo yes, dident you hear? the charchol canister soaks up the gas vapors and puts it the HVAC sytem in your car (who knew we had HVAC!?) so you suffocate and die...

you fail at pwn. HVAC = Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning.

Still, he's a moron thinking it has anything to do with those. maybe if you breathe methane.
