Driver Side Battery Leaking

I don't want to post this in the problem area since I don't know if it is actually a problem or just my bad luck.

I am on my second driver side battery, the first was replaced at 12K for leaking and now at 45K the new battery is now leaking. Keep in mind the passenger battery is fine. I was told even thought the battery is off the self it does not have the 3 year replacement and 7 year warranty, this is because Ford replaced it under the 3/36.

I thought I read somewhere that leaking driver side batteries was being noticed by other 6.7 owners. Just wondering if I am not the only one, next time your hood is up check it out. Not that it really matters, but if others are leaking I am going to switch to gel/glass pack batteries.

Thanks

I would pull it and look for a badly placed bolt ETC
that would wear through the case

and a AGM or Gel would be ruined by the same situation

It is leaking on the top from under the two caps and positive terminal on mine in both cases. I also replaced the metal hold down bracket, which is also again corroding.

but if the 6.7 is like the rest of the Power strokes both batts are tied together and receive the same charge ,, however that I can't confirm on the 6.7

Or maybe it is just too hot in that part of the engine compartment? I really don't know.

I will keep you posted and hopefully some other owners will check theirs and post the findings.
