I am trying to remove the charcoal canister, I took off a screw from underneath it, but the thing will not budge. There is a plate in the wheel well with what looks like 3 rivets or flat head bolts. You cannot get a socket on it. Is this thing riveted on or something????

blkulis,

No- It should be bolted on and according to the Ford Master Parts Catalog, the nuts are on the inside. Nice! Brain, can you spread open the band? Maybe spray some WD-40 over night?

Remove the 1 bolt in the strap

Canister will slid up and out

This exposes the 3 nut holding the bracket on
