Not sure if this is what you're looking for or not. I was under the hood investigating the air filter leak issues on my 2017. Here are some pics.

What's this about an air filter leak on your 2017? Tell us more.

Is there anything I should look for on my 2017?

Sorry for the confusion. There is NO LEAK on my 2017. I was just trying to understand the well known leak and wet air filter issue from previous year models after reading some of the threads. When I came across perchancetodream's request for 2017 air cleaner box pics I figured I would post some.

BTW, these plastic bag wrapped foam pieces are weird. What's the function?

We've decided that they are anti rattle bags. They are in plastic to keep them from disintegrating but some have been found filled with water. They are weird.

I think they are for sound deadening- I pulled mine out since they each had a quart+ of water in them.
I can now hear a little turbo whistle that I couldn't before- doesn't bother me, I kind of like it

FYI...just changed air filter(161k). It was dirty but dry. So the recall seems to have worked..no more wet air filter(fingers crossed).

I have yet to get any kind of notice from Ford for the leaking air filter box. I've replaced the air filter once have checked it several times and no sign of water. Plugging my VIN into the Etis shows this: ACCESS TO GOASIS (196) Any idea what this means?
