Shattered plenum on a Duratec 2.0

Has anyone experienced a shattered plenum ? when starting the car there was an almighty bang then smoke from under the bonnet. Removed the bonnet to find the plenum was split along its seam , also damaged the bonnet 




Hi GBYellow61,

I'd suggest posting this on Blatchat > Techtalk forum rather than in the Blogs....might have more success with replies.
