You could try the junkyard websites to order one. However, I am courious, are you out of warranty at this time? There is a TSB from Fordfor the 06 for water intruding the ECU area in the fire wall. This should be taken care of by Ford?? ANd if they tell you it is due to Washer fuild, how by color? Then it was defective from the factory............

It may not........It would definitely be if you were under warranty. Have your service rep run the TSB (technical Service Bullitens) for the 2006 model. It is my understanding that this particular TSB came out in June/July 2007. You may still have a loop hole, and that is that the vehicals ECM is also an emission device and you may be able to get Ford repair as the water intrusion in to the ECM is a known defect........Good luck

Check with Ford or salvage yard they can cross reference part number for different years.
