?? How to drain fuel/water seperator??

I received a water in fuel light on my 05 f250 so like a good little boy I went to the ford book. After looking at the sparse instructions I found the horizonal mouted fuel filter, but for the life of me, I could not find the drain lever that is referenced in the book. Has anyone else had to drain the water seperator on a 6.0L? If so, what is the best way to do it?

I know I must be over looking something, but what??

On the HFCM there is a plug, in the center bottom of the HFCM cover. Remove this plug to drain the HFCM. Be prepared to take a diesel bath though. I use a lot of news paper, aluminum foil to direct the flow and rags.

If you have the same problem that I had, with the previous owner stipping out the 6mm alan key get one of these makes draing soo much easier.
