Need help with broken fuel filter cap!

I went outside today to change out my fuel filters and got the primary under the drivers side all done, but opened the engine bay to find the cap on my secondary has been completely torn apart! Guess the previous owner tried doing it and overtorqued it.....

Now what?? I cant unscrew that cap for anything. The 15/16" socket wont do it (that part is completely gone) and even a 1/2" square drive wont do it (that part is stripped out too). How can I pop that baby off to change my filter out??

I had the same problem and ended up just ordering one of the billet ones from one of the vendors on this site and will be ordering the oil filter cap as well. Just so that I dont have any more problems. In order to get the old one off I had to use a screw driver and hammer and it wasnt pretty.

Its plastic, have to break it apart or cut a knotch in the edge and take a screwdriver and hammer and tap it loose. Might take a sawzall and cut a groove across the top and use a big azz screwdriver or the like to unscrew it. I have an extra one i;ll sell ya cheap. Its used but still good.
From the dealer and OEM replacement is about 35 bucks.

Put a little bit of grease on the threads and O-ring when you put a peplacement on there and it will prolong the life of that O-ring as well as make it easier to lake back off later.
