    The problem areas are usually where the steel pipe joins onto the flexible pipes in the rear axle area - and also where the bends are particularly tight.
    Although 99% of the pipe may look perfect, it only needs one problem area (rightly so) to fail.
    Your 2002 car has done well if its a first issue....I wonder how many Fords could say that :p
    John :)
