For cross reference, we seem to have a need for a charcoal canister location & DIY thread based on what's in this thread today:
-> E39 (1997 - 2003) > Charcoal cannister 540- 2002

Do you have P0455 and P0422 codes?

I typed "/charcoal canister" in the bestlinks for you to find these:
- How to replace the LDP leak detection pump charcoal canister (1) (2) & does spilled gasoline go into the charcoal canister (1)

I think we should beef up our knowledge of the location of the charcoal canister & a DIY to test & replace it on both the V8 & I6 (if it's different).

For my part, I'll cross reference to this thread from there so people more easily find what's already in the bestlinks.
