Hi
is it possible that bleed screw (coolant reservoir) is always wet (some small amount of coolant around it) after the ride?

After any ride I see wet around bleed screw, coolant is dropping (idle) from "under" the screw, small amount however visible

I open main screw and bleed screew and found that there is no seal under it (plastic to plastic)
When I tried to screw it harder ,and screw skipped to loose position .. so all I can do is to screw it till first ligth resistance ..
In such a position coolant slightlu leaking from bleed screw.

I added some seal under it what improved a little however not solve the problem

Mayby I am wrong and some small amount near the bleed screw is normal?

please help .. I almost order new reservoir ... with new bleed screw.

what is important some days ago I changed a coolant fluid so maybe some air still need to be remove(nothing visible, temperature keeps ok, fan working perfect, )

I think you have answered your own question.

The Bleed Screw is not able to tighten up as it should.

To cure the problem you need to replace the part where the bleed screw is located.

So all reservoir or just bolt(bleed screw)?
what is more possible... damage bleed screw or reservoir internal screw?
will be easier to change both I guess
thx
