There is a black box mounted under the car just behind the rear differential. Does anyone know what it does and does it need the plastic guard? I cut a driveway curb a little short and shattered the right side of the mount as the right rear tire dropped down.:rolleyes: Does it have to be there or can I remove what's left of it?
Thanks...

That "Black box" is your Charcoal Canister....it's part of the EVAP system and any damage to it will illuminate your check engine light.....it would be a good idea to get that protector replaced if not next time you clip a curb it might be that box that gets damaged.....it costs over 500$ to replace the charcoal canister....probably under 50$ to replace the shield.
