(Not sure how loud this is, so check your volume before playing them)
Here is chatter into second and sustained chatter in 4th gear:

More chatter in second:

EDIT: And sorry the noise of the camera and tires are pretty much the same pitch as the slipping clutches. I wish you could could just test drive my car in-person.
Yes - I recognize the noise in the 2nd video. I think by now most of us are familiar with it to some degree Ford says it's just a noise and not a problem - what's the truth? When will these trnasmissions start to break down and how much will they cost to fix (There's 1000s of posts here about this issie but none I've seen that can adress these 2 key. questions).
