Hey,

I have a small leak from the front left air valve behind the front bumper, shown here as FN 13

It wiggles a little bit and I was wondering if there was a way to tighten up the weird nut on the back of it to stop the leak? I didn't want to try to touch it till I knew what was on the other side of the nut and what it might do if I put some tools on it.

Thanks!

That is a simple shut off valve with regular pipe threads Any hardware store home depot / lowes plumbing dept can set you up. It might look different but will work fine.

It is normally a rotating seat on a shaft. It will not hurt to try to tighten up. If murphy strikes, easy fix.

yeah, right now its not bad, probably secure one before I got tightening it when the inevitable happens and it snaps off the handle.
