I'm guessing someone has cut a hole under the back seat to remove the pump rather than drop the tabnk and remove it that way?
Although it sounds like they made a rough job of it there's nothing really wrong with that if it's neatly cut and has a cover plate made to go back over it again, I've done it myself on older cars where removing the tank is going to end up meaning a new tank, tank straps and possibly fuel pipes are needed.
To be fair to whoever sold you it it wouldn't be an MOT failure as they wouldnt have any reason to look under the back seat at MOT time and you won't see it from underneath so how could they know that it was even like that under there?

i cut a hole underneath the back seat of my focus to get to the fuel pump, i then made a plate to cover the hole back up, the reason i did this was because.......
bmws have a pre cut hole and a plate as standard, i like that idea, the pump hyad to be changed in my focus, and fcuk taking the tank off, now if it ever needs attention again, its much easier to access!
Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

How do you know HE cut that hole? If he's taken the fiesta in as part ex it could have been done by the previous owner? OK his response to you was a bit annoying personish but you ringing up making demands for something maybe he didnt do might get his back up a bit?

Hey bottom line is,as with any used car,if your gunna by it,then you are the one that takes the risks! So stop moaning and get on with it! If you want a full warranty,by a new car from a ford dealer! ok?
