Raw Gas Smell/Unknown Part
Had a raw gasoline smell from fuel tank area on my 1997 D90 NAS. Dropped the tank for inspection and other reasons. I observed a clear hose which appears severed or disconnected. The hose extends from a black plastic box located in the rear wheel well on passenger's side. What is the "cut" hose supposed to be connected with? The fuel vent pipes? I cannot find any diagrams on the websites or in the manual.
Also, I followed the frame rail to the engine looking for the remaining part of this hose but none exists. There is, however, a similar hose running out of the "black box" and to the engine and I assume its the fuel line. The "black box" has a total of three connections and one is the fuel line.
Q 1: What is that box called?
Q 2: Where does this hose connect?
Q 3: What does the fuel tank vent pipes connect to?
