What is it ? Ford part.

Recommended Posts

My wife found this on the ground after I went to work. Near the drivers side door.

Its about 2 inches long.

I've sent the same pics to my dealer. I'll bet they don't know what it is.

Pay no attention to the date on the pics. I hardly use my digital camera anymore.

No this just happened a couple of days ago on my 2010. Still no word from the dealership.

Called their parts dept. Its a heater plenum drain. It appears to connect externally just below where the A/C lines go thru the firewall . I wonder how many have lost theirs. If mine hadn't fell off in my driveway I would have never known. Anyway I'll let the dealership replace it after my vacation. If one of you is under your transit changing oil or something would you take a pic and post it. These pics show where I think it should be.

It is an 18K330. Any parts guy/gal can figure that out in seconds.

Is this piece necessary? In Alaska we have extremely rough roads and I imagine mine has fallen off somewhere in the state if you have lost yours so easily.

Anyone have a definitive answer on this? Answer as in, is it a mission-critical part or can we leave it laying in the driveway? I found this exact part laying on my driveway when I came home from work yesterday. It sure must be poorly attached, if it will fall off the vehicle while it sits motionless in a driveway. I'm holding onto it and will bring it with me to the dealer when I get an oil change, I guess.

They just reattached it when I brought it with me. I can hope they secretly glued it and didn't tell me that... otherwise it's just falling out again. And it is some kind of drain tube.

Had a problem with condensate from the AC unit coming into the passenger side this past summer. I checked and the elbow cap was missing from covering the condenste drain tube. I solved the problem by putting s plastic elbow into the rubber tube, pointed it down, and secured it with a hose clamp. The elbow cover apparently keeps the air from blowing the condensate back into the vehicle.

Can you point me (and others) to the location of this part? Is it fairly easy to get to? I'd like to check on it and see if it's still there.

It is on the firewall, behind the engine and is tough to get to. The steering rack blocks it. It is easier to get to if the vehicle is on a lift, or if the front is up on ramps or jack stands.
