"Shutter System" Build Date 25 May 12

I went outside and identified the "shutter" system behind the lower grille. Since I parked it after an hour on the interstate (engine HOT), the shutter system was OPEN. The next morning I started the engine and went around to the front of the car and watched the shutter close (engine COLD). After about (5) minutes of the engine warming up, I watched the shutter OPEN. I'm going to go with the assumption that mine is functioning as designed and avoid any unnecessary dis-assembly of my new Focus at the dealer. Obviously not ALL the wiring harnesses were damaged in that time frame, but maybe SOME of them..............
