Hi all,

Has anyone had a problem with their ford focus each time they fill it up, it leaks from the breather pipe.

ill assume if its leaking you have overfilled it?

are you sure its the breather and not the filler pipe? the filler pipes are crap for leaking

I have the same problem with my 1998 1.8 petrol 5-door Zetec Focus, the breather pipe has been replaced. What is the solution to the filler pipes leaking? What needs replacing? Is it a difficult job? What has to be removed to get at the pipes? Can you gain access from the boot? If it is a common problem how come there is hardly any information on here about it?

To add to the above, are the filler pipes made of metal or rubber?
