Hi, when looking under the bonnet of my Kuga today, I noticed that the bolts holding the silver plate onto the front of the 1.5 petrol engine, were coming out, with one missing. There are 2 hose’s coming off of the plate. Anybody know what the plate is? Anybody had this issue before? Thanks....

Welcome to the forum. It might be best to post up a picture. ;)

From what you describe it sounds like the WCAC (Water cooled air charger, Intercooler to everyone else)
You'll want to refit the missing bolt and check the tightness of the others or you may develop a boost leak.

Thanks for the reply. I did indeed replace the bolt, and checked the tightness on all others, and they were also loose. I did have a intermittent hesitation under hard acceleration from around 3000 rpm, which has since stopped, so this may well have been the cause. Thank you.
