The Clutch Pedal Box in my AU Falcon XR6 is cracked; I noticed it when water was leaking in when it rained. Now does anyone know if this is a common fault with the XR6 5 Speed Manual series? I think I'm looking at having to take the dash out as the crack appears to require welding. Could this be a common fault with this model in the manual configuration and if so does FORD know about it?

yeah nothing new about pedal boxes bending and firewalls cracking.
been a problem right through the E series, might even be a doco in the tech section about fixing the firewall.
