    Blocked boot lid drain plugs - check yours!

    Hi All,

    My first post, hopefully its in the correct place - just purchased my new wheels 3 months ago.

    Just a heads up to you all - Today, while I was washing around the rear hatch I noticed it still had its plug hole stickers on from when it was new!

    To help prevent rust in these areas, I suggest you check yours aren't still on, and if they are, you should take them off.

    (Car 2012 Ford Focus ST)

    Stay cool.

    I checked mine after a previous thread in here, also left on.
    I did take my car the day after it arrived at the dealership though so I couldn't imagine they could've been too thorough

    There was just a very active thread made about this a few days ago, mine were NOT there when I looked to confirm that they shouldn't be. It's rumored to be part of the post-production inspection that is missed. Sticky for this thread?
