I just recently removed my passanger side front guard and bumper, replacing them due to an accident and I found these wires hanging out. I have no idea what was connected to them? I've heard it might be an ABS unit?

If that is correct how much am I looking at to replace it?

I have been driving my car for around 6 months without whatever was meant to be there without any issues with braking.

Any help would be fantastic.

where the 2 hoses join the junction,that plugs into the carbon canister (black box) it vents the fuel vapours into the carbon canister and then they are absorbed into the charcoal, clean air is then put back into the motor. it would be affecting the emissions controls side on the engine management . someone will correct me if im wrong

Ah ok, yeah I get what it is now. Thanks for the info, one last question where we would be the best place to source one of the canisters out.
