I have a 2003 SRT4 Neon with a corroded pressed in nipple that the puke can drain connects to. I easily pulled the metal tube out with pliers and was wondering if others have ran into this problem. I might be able to drill and tap the hole for a brass nipple but there's not a lot of material to work with.


thanks in advance

 I believe that the brass bleeder nipple nut is staked into the plastic housing. For safety's sake, I would replace the thermostat housing.
