05 C320 coupe. Dealer says charcoal canister is clogged & wants $950 to fix. Options?
I cant fuel my car more than 1 gallon without taking a break. I took it to the dealer, they diagnosed it as a clogged charcoal canister and says repair will cost around $950
Can someone point me towards the right direction? Called a few autoparts stores they claim thats a "dealer only" part. There has to be another way.. I'm open to any options!
EDIT: I was told by the dealer the vehicle needs a new charcoal canister which is needed for the evaporative system with the fuel tank. The canister would need a new valve and wiring harness due to the fact that the canister is an updated part.

EDIT 2: I think I found the original part:
Mercedes Benz - C320 - Purge Valve - Vapor canister - 0004701593
Can any one confirm? I'm assuming since its unmodified I wouldn't need the other two items?
