Noob question but after getting the rubber gasket, how do I install it on the cap? Do you have to use some sort of epoxy glue or something?

Thanks for the tip. ECS has them and it is labeled as a VW/Audi part. I just installed mine and I can confirm that it is indeed the same size gasket.

It's not glued in any way. You just pull it up and over the metal tabs to get it off.

Same issue even with the Aluminum Bimmian one I switched to, I just added another rubber gasket and no issues since and it fits nice and snug now.

Awesome info guys, I actually found that mine leaked a bit as well. I was getting worried for a bit but now that I see it has been revised and or can be fixed, this puts my mind at ease haha.

Thanks for the tip about the gasket. I'll be sure to order one. My cap leaks intermittently
