Hey everyone i have two of these cars: a 2012 titanium automatic and a 2013 SE... Both have coolant issues as it slowly seems to drop below the line, seems "normal" compared to many other mk3 owners.
A few months ago the rad shit all over the road at a light, wont hold coolant at all now and is definitely coming from in behind the electric fan.
Well its not the easiest thing to get off so if anyone knows about any write ups or tips it would be greatly appreciated!
I will document as much as i can for others as i go.

I just researched on here a bit, location of clips etc, if i recall correctly you have to remove the top clips above the grill to get at the top of the rad etc but i switched mine out from the bottom, quick and easy job, single core rad was around $160 canadian.
I got oem coolant from partsource and the level hasnt moved a mm since!
Had it documented on my old phone but i shattered it and lost everything

2012 Focus Titanium
