Water separator

Well I finally got the dreaded drain water separator alarm. After always opening it up monthly I got the alarm and drained it. Now the damn thing will not clear off. Cleared and drove down the road to get the alarm again! Anyone else have this issue? I ordered new filters and plan on just changing them out and cleaning the sensor.

At first I couldn't figure out how to get the sensor out!! I didn't want to break the damn thing finally just got it out, but for everyone else simply turn it 90 degrees left and pull straight out! Oh and drain your lines prior to this or you will get a diesel bath!!! I gave it a good cleaning with brake clean and a scribe. Then blew it out with compressed air.

This was not difficult at all I felt like a dummy once it did come free... As soon as the diesel started flowing I shoved it back in haha! Whats hilarious is my first reaction was to plug it with my finger then I was like wake up dummy put it back in!! I placed an old wine rubber stopper in while I cleaned it out.
