    Not the same situation, but I stripped the fitting on the right once. I found that the dealer doesn't sell the fitting separately from the pump (at least the one on the right,) but luckily the parts guy hooked me up. He went and found a pump that was going back under warranty and swapped the fitting for me.

    Wish I could offer you more advice, but worst case scenario, maybe a friendly parts guy can help you out. :thumbup:
