#298139 Mondeo Fluids Mix Up

Hi Stef , 

 

No I don't believe he started the car just that on pouring the last drop of brake fluid in he'd realised what he'd done and got in a bit of a panic . I've since calmed his nerves a bit with the earlier replies . 

 

Cheers all the same .  :)

I was browsing the threads and saw your leak issues . 

 

I have a 2005 Focus 4dr and had this problem a few years ago . In my case the aperture in which the black plastic vent fits into on each side of the car (just opposite end to where your arrow is in the photo) was at fault . Fixed successfully with a generous helping of silicone sealant but it took a couple of attempts . 

 

Hope you get it sorted .  :)

A buddy of mine (non member) who drives a 2006 Mondeo TDCI  has had a mishap and accidentally put DOT4 Brake fluid in to the Power steering fluid reservoir . 

 

Does it begin and end with just emptying the steering reservoir of the mixed fluids and top up with the appropriate spec fluid ? 

 

Thanks in advance folks , from him and from me   :)
