leaking heater plug on fuel bowl

Hey I was blowing fuse 22 and discovered fuel spraying out of the heater plug on the driver side fuel bowl. Is there a way to plug that? I can't figure out how to get it out. any help would be appreciated.

fuel heater has a o ring or something that the connector passes through. Get the fuel bowl o ring rebuild kit from diesel o rings.com and replace the fuel heater if you want. It comes out from the inside of the bowl. Unless you live in climate where its really cold you don't HAVE to replace the heater. I live in the mountains of nc and we get decently cold here and I haven't had a working bowl heater in several years. The heater also has the water in fuel sensor also...something to keep in mind

Thanks for the reply, i took out the plastic connector and the center was broke all to pieces, i am going by the ford house to pick one up today. Its $40, I wish there was just a plug i could put in that hole to fill the void. Oh well i guess it could be worse. Thanks for you reply!

The heater feedthrough is some kind of "thermostat" (for lack of a better term ... maybe a thermistor). It is sealed with an o-ring and is held down witha sort-of crecent-shaped piece by the Water-in-Fuel sensor. I brokr mine when trying to get the heater wire disconnected (which is why I recommend disconnecting the fuel heater from inside the fuel bowl). Here's the part number if you need it:

Fuel Heater Thermostat
