VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE ENGINE PROBLEM

2000 Volkswagen Beetle • 135,000 miles

P0441 code for incorrect purge flow, the valve was bad so I put in a brand new one and you can hear it function but the code came back after 50 miles.
the old valve was dead, you could tell it did not work, I replaced the vacuum lines and clamps, I can not find the charcoal canister, I was told it was behind the driver side front tire.
i took off the plastic inner fender and it wasn't there and it is nowhere under the hood.

as of right now there are no codes for evaporative leaks, there are no vacuum leaks and the car runs great aside from always smelling like oil even though it does not smoke and the engine is spotless.

Hi,

The Charcoal Canister is in the right rear wheel well.
