Re: newby

Yes, not sure but this may have been part of a field service action or recall. How old is the car?

Re: newby

Take it to your nearest Ford dealer and see what they can do for you, you'd need full service history and it's better if you've owned it from new.

Re: newby

Get on to Customer Care and tell them the problem is a known concern, also the extremely low mileage and service history if relevant; I know water leaks aren't really covered after the first year though, so don't expect too much. Sorry mate.
