2001 maxima leaking black stones from rear

I have a 2001 Nissan Maxima SE and I recently noticed that in the back on the drivers side there are little black stones falling out of a black box. It looks like the box got damaged somehow and now has a crack/opening. The box sits on the opposite side of the muffler. What is this box and what should I do?

You apparently are seeing charcoal granules which are contained inside the vapor canister.This box collects fuel vapors and fumes which are released into the atmosphere via this box.This emmision device is computer driven as far as purge valves and vacumm actuators. You probably will see a check engine light and DTCs(diagnostic trouble codes) arise from this canister being compromised. You might try and save a few dollars and search locally for a salvage replacement from another vehicle that was wrecked in a different location.At any rate,you should replace this item as fuel vapors are unsavory and un-safe for all concerned.

2005 Nissan Maxima SE Fog light replacement


jorgeva: on the driver's side to gain access, you must remove the air cleaner assembly. At that point, you can see the back of the light which has a plastic cap. Rotate this "counter clockwise" and you can pull it back from the back of the lamp housing. From there you will see how the bulb it self is plugged in, which is obvious. Unplug it. There is a "spring "like latch retainer to hold the bulb in place. Unlatch it, remove the bulb and install the new bulb.
CAUTION!!!!!!! DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS AREA OF THE NEW BULB! Only handle the rear section. Reassemble in the reverse order.
The right side will require the removal of the windshield washer tank.
I trust this will have answered your question. If you would, let me or FIXYA know if I have solved your problem......
