Thanks. Expensive little buggers. Looked online and they are $29 each although I guess any part less than $100 is a "deal". :)

Update and Thanks to you all

I bought a new cap and did the drive around "easy bleed" and so far so good. The car has not gone wee wee on the floor or parkling lots and haven't had any condensation under the cover. :)
