Yes our 2011 diesel did this about 3 weeks ago, whilst driving along at about 50.

The hose to the heater came unclipped at its engine end and the car overheated and stopped.

AA refitted it, topped up the water and I limped home.

Locale stealer said no fault found but topped up the coolant.

Design fault with the clips or factory is not assembleing them correctly.!

Your dealer should know it. (Most likely it's Spain, if we only consider the distance)

Go to www.etis.ford.com, click on the 'Vehicle' link near the top then enter your reg number in the box on the left. This will show you where the car was built along with loads of other information such as all the options chosen, build date, registration date etc.

Beneath the section you saw that in there should be a couple of boxes with a light blue background - the lower one has a link at the bottom to expand the list. Click this to see loads more detail; the 6th item in mine says 'Niehl Plant Built', the Spanish one I believe says Valencia.
