Wiped off the dust on the engine and some of the paint on the right side valve cover, cover for the 6.1L call out flaked off. I figured no big deal I'll just order a new one. No go seems they have been discontinued. Anyone know of anywhere with a new one in stock or what the part number was? Has anybody fixed theirs?

This is a common problem. I experienced it, too, on my 2009 SRT.

Other than spending $130 for new valve covers, there are two options to fix it:

1. Apply decals. You can select a color to match your car. I chose this option and purchased orange lettering to match my Hemi-orange car.

2. Repaint with heat resistant paint that is compatible with plastic.

If you want to buy new valve covers, you can purchase them on E-Bay at:
