The plastic nipple glued to the tank that connects to the fill tube came off. The glue came completely off. What is on the other side of the nipple wont come completely out, is there a way to glue it back in appropriately?

Thanks for visiting 2CarPros.

The nipple assembly was designed to be able to turn it 30-45 degrees and it unlocked from the tank. I do not see any listing for it sold separately, you may want to call your local dealer to see if it's available. You could use a two part epoxy that is fuel resistant but there's no guarantees on how long it might hold up. You could contact a radiator shop about welding in a nipple as well.
