Had a call from dealer on Friday, check complete, no work required. Only 0.2% of all engines affected? Will be registered on Monday 9th, collecting Wednesday, all being well. Thanks for the informative posts. Waiting for goodwill gesture now from Ford.
Actually it is 1.0% of all Dragon engines that are estimated to be affected... that is approx 3000 vehicles.
Question has anyone come across a vehicle that has been and if so was it noticed prior and or
during the inspection?

Recall was carried out today.. Nothing found wrong with the oil separator as I suspected.
Have say my dealership did an excellent job. It was a while you wait booking. Not only did they wash the car, they carried out a full health check, recorded a video and gave me a three page report on vehicle condition. All done in approx 90minutes a 5 star ⭐ service in my opinion.
Interesting to note after 7600 miles my ST's tyre's are recorded as just a smidge over 5mm on the front and a smidge over 6mm rear, tread depth :D

Re the tyres....There is a complete thread on here about the tread depth..

TLDR:- They start out at a smidge over 5mm, unlike older tyres, but wear slower.
That's according to my communications with Continental.

Rays1, with a dealer that good you should name them. May be of benefit to other owners and new buyers.

Yes understood and appreciate that in so much this does not really relate to this series of postings. But it was only added here as it came about as a result of the 'Recall action' Whilst remembering my tyres are Michelin Pilot sport 4S with an 8mm original tread depth.

Mine came back today, no issies.
Also full health check carried out with video and email eith health report.
Tyres all over 6.5mm, 5% pad wear, no disc damage. All good.
Have since found that driving in sports mode rather than normal, better MPG even with E10.
Round 40MPG as opposed to 37.4 in normal.

Love my ST

But have you tried Track Mode, with ESC or Sport ESC engaged?
