Charcoal Canister and Protector box

How hard is it to replace the charcoal canister and protector box. My wife’s 2014 Sorento threw a P0455 code and I researched it and determined that is the cause. She apparently ran something over and damaged the box as well as the charcoal canister. From what I’ve found, the canister looks to be expensive. I’m considering going to a junkyard to get the parts unless it is recommended not to. I will call the stealership to see what they will charge just to get a general idea if it’s worth it or not. I attached pictures to help so what I’m dealing with. Thanks in advance for your help.

You did not supply your model or engine info. You can try this to see if it's applicable to your vehicle.. Kia Sorento: Canister Removal - Evaporative Emission Control System - Emission Control System - Kia Sorento XM 2011-2019 Service Manual . Looks like $250-$350.00 part. Depending on your deductible $$, collision insurance could be an out.

Sorry about that. Is the 3.3 l V6. I was posting it last night after work half asleep. I was able to get a vapor canister from Rock Auto for $244.20 with overnight shipping. After doing more research, it appears that removing the current one and installing the new one should be simple. I’m hoping I can fix the protector box and keep from having to buy a new one. I’ve checked every junkyard and none seem to have one. A new one from Kia is $249.41.

Switched it out with a new canister that I bought on Rock Auto. The “quick disconnects” were a pain but the actual removal was easy. I had to make a new cover for it because the dealership wants $250 for a new one and I had no luck finding any in a junk yard. I would definitely say that the two holes in the canister was the cause of my trouble code for a vapor leak. The code cleared itself within a mile of driving it.

Looks like you have a "skid plate" now. Good news is that whatever it was did not puncture the fuel tank instead. Appears to be a scrape on the tank. Instead of codes, probably would have lost fuel and quit on the road (or worse).
