Hi have noticed coolant level dropping in car for a few day. Traced leak to the thermostat but even after replacing thermostat and seal is still dripping around the area . Wondering has anybody else had a problem with a leak around this area and could it be the housing itself is at fault?

Have something to contribute?

If its a plastic housing, its the most likely cause of the leak. I thought the stat would have been part of the housing like most of the other Fords.

the few that i have done on focus' and my mondeo the stat has been available separately but i have always just replaced the complete housing. possibly saves any more hassle in the future

Try ford parts uk - google that and you can get them to quote you (usually a bit cheaper than the dealer)
