WIF light on, HFCM lever broken... have to get to work
2008 6.4l First diesel truck, only have had it for like 4 months.
Light came on while driving home today, looked in the manual on how to drain the water. The lever broke off while I was attempting to drain the water so I tried to twist it from the drain and that broke off too, so I tried to pull the cover off and just diesel poured out for a couple minutes... I stopped and tightened it back up when my coffee can filled up.
I called Ford and the part is on order, but won't be here till Wednesday. How can I get this water out without the drain functioning? I figured cracking the cover open would work about the same as opening the drain.
If I were to park the truck facing uphill or downhill if I took the cover completely off would that work? Should I take the filter out? I have all the tools I could really possibly need, I just don't really know how this thing works.
HELP! Gotta get to work in the morning.
