Badly corroded sump on a 2004 Ford Focus ST170

Just had the car serviced and have been told that the sump is badly correded. Has anyone els experienced this problem. Surely a sump should last longer than 5 years! Does anyone know why this should be?

I have a 2003 ford mustang v6, throwing code p1518.


its your intake manifold runner. its a silver box. they all go bad. ether a corroded chip bord or the bar falls off that controls it. If you hear a rattle sound coming from the dash its a barr that fell off if no sound then corrosion. ford wants 600 to fix this but you can do it yourself without bying a new one. ill try to post a link.

My ford focus st170 is leak foamed water under the carpets passengers sides only and boot passenger side only


air conditioner/heater compressor's or evap canister is leaking on the floor. It is very common with the focus. After time that water begins to stink! Try silicone to seal the leaky component which would be above the floor mat.

Replace bulb ford focus


i have a 2003 st170 and to replace my bulbs you have to release the flaps on the back of the light by pushing the metal clip down. remove the cover completely.
on the bulb will be a metal clip i think if you push the end which will be towards the wing of the car down and then it will swing towards you and release the bulb.
remove bulb and replace with new.
try not to handle the bulb with your bare skin use a tissue to handle it with.
when fitting the new bulb make sure you get the groove in the bulb inline with the one in the housing this way the bulb will sit in the correct position its easy enough.

repeat for the opposite side... im not sure about your car but with the st170 you have to remove the battery in order to replace the drivers side bulbs.

i hope thats of some help to you.
