Anyone run into this garbage yet?

Checking my coolant levels this morning and some shit like this happens... think it'll just spin out? I really hope I'm not in for replacing the e tank.

Did you forget to attach a picture or video? At least I cannot determine from your description what has happened

Looks like it's the remnants of dried up coolant?

Dried up coolant everywhere, yeah, but did you guys miss the part where his cap broke apart entirely?

Head on over to the dealer, they'll probably just pull it out & give you a new cap which will solve the dissipating coolant issue.

I already picked up a new cap. Just havent had time to let it sit long enough to cool. Hopefully I'll get it in the morning.
