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?
