I just purchased a used 2011 Focus. There was a small amount of corrosion on the hold down. I thought this might not be unusual but upon removing and cleaning, noticed corrosion down in the battery tray and on the support plate and even underneath that, I fear on top of the transmission. There were pools of acid in the depressions where the tray bolts are. I cleaned the tray up however the bolts are so corroded I think they will break if I try to remove them. Going back to the dealer. Has anyone else had this experience?
