I think I screwed up big time.
Changed oil today and as part of my maintenance, I opened up the water separator drain but when I tightened it up, I must have stripped something and now it won't stop dripping.
Stranded. Anyone have any idea how to fix this? I've got a new filter assembly on order.
Thanks

Yup, I twisted mine off and had to replace the entire lower cap. The whole water separator is only sold as an entire unit, so I had to purchase the whole thing. The nice part is you'll get another filter with it as well, so just think of it as a very expensive filter.

The water separator drain is very sensitive to over-tightening. Be very careful when opening/closing it.

Here's my thread about it: Broke Water Drain
