The general cause of your leak is the pollen filter seal, unfortunately it's a common occurrence after a pollen filter has been replaced.
When a pollen filter is replaced on your car the seal should be replaced at the same time.
The filter is reached by removing the scuttle panel on the passenger side of the windscreen near the wiper.
The filter and seal will be visible beneath it and i guarantee that is where the problem lies.
There is no real quick fix, the seal needs to be changed for total peace of mind.
The Ford part (Finis) number for the seal is [b][u]1316193[/u][/b] and is usually a stock part in a Ford spares department.
If you require a new pollen filter as well (if it's soaked) the finis number is [u][b]1121106[/b][/u]
The scuttle cover is finis number [u][b]1320540[/b][/u].
If you really want to be sure to avoid future leaks there is a modified scuttle cover available as a kit with the seal and filter here-
Hope that's of help to you.
