Where is the radiator cap on a Ford Fiesta?

The Location of the Radiator Cap on a Ford Fiesta
The radiator cap on a Ford Fiesta is located on the coolant reservoir tank. It is important to note that the Ford Fiesta does not have a traditional radiator cap on the radiator itself. Instead, the cap is located on the plastic coolant reservoir tank, which is typically found in the top left or right corner of the engine bay.
Please keep in mind that it is crucial to exercise caution when dealing with the radiator cap. Removing the cap on a warm engine can cause it to fly off at a high rate of speed and result in fluid spraying out of the reservoir. Always wear safety goggles when working on your Ford Fiesta and promptly wipe up any spilled fluid, as it can be highly toxic.
