WARNING about the fuel water seperator cap on frame
Well the cheap *** i am i was going to change the fuel filters on my 2011. Got the filters from an online source much cheaper than the dealer was almost by 1/2. Bought the 32mm socket for removing the cap on frame to access filter. Got my 1/2 drive socket wrench crawled under truck & put socket on wrench then onto 32mm PLASTIC nut on cap. Went to turn it counter clockwise as directions say in manual & the DAMN PLASTIC NUT broke off. So now fuel is spewing out of the hole where the nut used to be. So now calling around to every dealer in my area & no one stocks one, too new of a part.. Found one in Midland,Tx but they wont sell it, its for the shop only..
Finally found one in Hobbs New Mexico & they are going to overnite it too me... Well woulda been cheaper to let dealer change it now...
Don't use the 32mm socket to remove, get a strap wrench or pipe wrench to turn the cap with....
