my fuel filter cap for the 2 mic, the one up 0n the engine got rounded off. cheap plastic. I tried the 1/2 drive that started sliiping then got a socket to fit now broke off the 2 corners. does anyone have any ideaa to remove it and can I get a new one from the dealer. thanks Brad.
The stock plastic cap is a POS. I went to change my fuel filters this afternoon and saw that it was already in rough shape so sure enough one little tug and the dam thing broke. All the local auto parts shops have to order a replacement and they are anywhere from 60-80 bucks. I just order the billet one for 50.
When removing and replacing these caps, the favourable method is to use a 15/16" socket instead of the 1/2" square drive. Also resist the temptation to overtighten the caps. This will reduce the likelihood of damage. Yes, I agree these caps are very cheap in quality though.
