If you do some searching here you'll discover Ford knows there is a problem with some of the clutches in the Duratec Foci and they have put out a TSB extending the warranty on the clutch for Duratec Foci to from 12,000 miles to 36,000 miles. If yours fails they will replace it with an upgraded clutch.

CORRECTION / CLARIFICATION: There is a newer TSB (technical service bulliten) for the clutches and people have had them replaced for free after 12,000 miles. BUT, the actual text of the TSB doesn't say 36,000 mile warranty on the clutch. And the clutch must fail due to a bad part problem (delamination, bad master cylinder). If you've just worn out your clutch you could very well be on your own. While this is a YMMV kind of deal it is very well worth looking into before paying to have your clutch replaced.
