Great! I'm thrilled that has been resolved.

So why not proactively handle this rather than reactively handle people on this site?
Perhaps I can shed a little light on the process. Not every issue has the same cause, or the same resolution. I proactively reach out to posters with continued concerns, and assist however possible. As whynotthinkwhynot said, when it comes to intermittent problems, they need to be duplicated to know how to repair it. The best advice I can give is to take note of the circumstances of when it occurs, as that may help the technicians diagnose it.

Hey pistolpt,

Welcome to the forum! I know this thread can be a little overwhelming to sort through. Have you brought your Focus to the dealer for inspection yet? Since you are worried about the sound, that would be the best course of action. Also, please private message me your VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state so I can help.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Hey, what can I say? When I speak, they listen! Sorry it took so long, but I'm glad they arrived and you're being taken care of. Let me know how it goes!
