Frost Plugs

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I recently had the timing belt and waterpump changed on my car. However the mechanic noted that the frost plugs/core plugs (they seem to go by loads of different names) looked quite corroded. His notes said the "frost plugs on top of the head, beside the spark plugs"

They weren't able to change them there and then as they didn't have the parts. Is getting these changed a big job, or expensive?

Car is a 2006 Fiesta 1.25

Thanks!

You can change these yourself if they need done. Personally unless they're badly corroded I wouldn't but if they are badly corroded then it suggests water is collecting in the plug wells so I'd be checking that out before doing them. (Well documented that water leaks from the windscreen washers on the mk6 Fiesta amongst other Fords)

Thanks for the info - so the washer jets leak? Is there a fix for that?

Much appreciated!
