Just been having a look around my car. I tipped up the back seats and had a look under the carpets hidden there beneath. Lo-and-behold there's a small black box of electronics under the offside rear seat, with a number of cables to and fro under there as well.

What have I found and what does it do ?

It's a 1.6 TDCi Ford Focus Zetec 57plate 5 Door and it needs a wash.  Think I'll do it now :)

I'd say most likely as that is where the tank is positioned.

If its like mine its to do with the Eloys fluid control - mine got disconnected when I had the dpf removed and it has come up here a couple of times when talking about that subject.  You really had to go digging to find it there under the carpet - were you looking for loose change left by the previous owner?
