Evap Canister and Vacuum Cut Valve Bypass Valve Replacement

Has anyone replaced these two before? How hard is it to replace the Evap canister? I plan on doing this tomorrow, I need to replace the Evap Canister because my bolts broke on the Vacuum Cut Valve Bypass Valve when I was trying to remove it. Chicago winters FTL!

Code: P0149 Vacuum Cut Valve Bypass Valve (for those who want to know, common problem on the b15s)

Not yet. I have had a recurring problem with my fuel level sensor. Had it replaced and the code still shows up. I clear it and forget it (for a while)

I need to figure out a new signature.

https://www.b15sentra.net/forums/show...highlight=EVAP Maybe you could PM a couple of the more recent posters in that thread; they might be able to help.

It's easy, but I hope you either have some spare 10mm bolts, or zip-ties to hold the new cannister on after the old bolts snap during removal.
Make sure your valve is already mounted to the cannister (or again- get extra 10mm bolts!) or else you may have to resort to silcone & zip-ties like many of us.

Were you throwing the same code?

The code first popped up at the end of summer. It would go on and off depending on what the fuel level was. I tried to take the vacuum cut bypass valve out to clean it, but the nuts broke. Now i will be replacing both the valve, and the canister, hopefully i can get rid of this code permanently. If not, what a waste of $279

KCnizmo, have you tried the cleaning procedure in that link up there? It might get you by, if you don't break it getting it off.

I have not done that, but some of the posters in that thread have ziptied the thing in place.

i had to change the whole box and valve after breaking both those tiny bolts trying to take the valve off to clean it. its just a couple bolts holging it up there behind the sheild and a matter of disconnecting all the lines comming from and going to the box. changed mine in less than 15 minutes.
