Welcome to Just Answer Dodge my name isXXXXX realize that all my answers are based solely on the info you provide me....


Where is it leaking



Customer: replied 6 years ago.
specifically, the plastic water in fuel drain, leaking from top and bottom. screw top is snug, tried to place finger over bottom hole, still leaks, maybe from the top portion of the lever. need to know how to repair the assembly, part not available from dealership unless replacing the entire filter assembly. If there are gaskets or o rings, they did not indicate or know

Ok, I will have to opt out because you already know what needs to be replaced and I cannot offer you an alternative....sorry.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer!

The fuel drain valve is replaceable and the part number is(NNN) NNN-NNNN

It is just screwed onto the fuel filter bowl and is easy to replace. You don't need to purchase the complete filter bowl/housing if this is all that is leaking.
I hope this helps, let me know!

Thank you,
