    The ticking noise? It's normal.

    The canister and pipes can be removed though I'm not sure how to go about it.

    yeah the ticking noise. its pretty loud
    tbh i don't fancy removing it all together but if a new one is a bit quieter and not that expensive then it might be worth it.

    I.think you need to blank one hose and vent another to the arch. I think the middle hose is a fuel line

    Fix what? the ticking noise? thats normal operation...

    Doing a EVAP delete would typically require diagnostics to be disabled in the map to stop CEL coming on tc...
