[ROVERNET - UK] Charcoal canister meltdown

Can someone give me an 'x-ray'  inside view of the charcoal canisters on my
3500S  V8.  When I went to clean/repaint them, I have discovered that the
granular charcoal is literally pouring out of the bottom tube (three tubes
to a canister/ top, side, bottom).  If I hold the canisters perfectly
vertical the 'flow seems to stop', but if I tilt them slightly to the side,
the charcoal just keeps running out.

Have these things rotted internally.  Because they are sealed there is no
way to 'fix' them.

Any help, recommendations, input, would be greatly appreciated.
