Has anyone just left their bedplate leak alone?

I know the bedplate leak is common on the 6.0 and I seem to be facing one too. I'm about two months from the end of my 5/100K warranty. I've been just living with it for a while because I've been nervous about having the truck torn apart to repair it.

Has anyone just left theirs alone? What was the result over time - did it get worse? Any long-term issues?

Thanks.

If you have the opportunity to have it repaired for free then I would jump on it. Not doing it would be a huge regret when you end up paying out of pocket for it.

Find a dealer that you feel comfortable with and let them handle it. It would even be worth traveling a few hundred miles for the amount of money you will save by letting Ford pick up the tab on this one.

Tuned, Deleted, Filtered, Monitored...all the usual stuff.

Well New Jersey is about an eight hour drive from Toronto, Ontario, Canada so I guess I can't help you out.
