Water separator filter Handle Broke Need help ASAP

Okay I was draining my water separator, and I drained it just fine, but then later I looked under the truck and there was a wet spot, so I climbed under the truck to take a look, and sure enough the leak was coming from the separator filter spout, so I opened it up and the closed it, and it was still leaking, so I went to open it again, and then the yellow handle broke off, so Now how do I get the valve to shut off.

Turns out that the spout from which you drain the filter from is conected to the handle valve. So I turned the spout so that the valve is shut, but now there is a constant drip when the truck is off. Any thoughts?

try seeing if you can manually close the valve by removing the front cover or by sticking a scribe in there. if not then your only option is to wait till ford opens up to buy a replacement kit.
