Please check the email I sent you on 6/12. You will see that I mentioned FF user wantz12, who has also mentioned on the board here that he has the same issue. I also suggested at that time that he contact you.

He mentioned it in this post, which was a reply to my install post on the prior page, where I first mentioned the issue in post #192 of that thread on 6/1 : 2012 Ford Focus K&N Intake kit Released.
Mine looks just like yours TBone so it certainly isn't isolated. I haven't noticed an issue yet because of it but I am keeping an eye on the filter and checking that it is still seated tightly very regularly.
