Just to give some insight on this whole situation, I used to own a 2006 Ford Explorer. From 2005/2006 Ford Redesigned the explorer a bit and changed the radiator type. This radiator type was prone to failure pre 100k miles. Mine started leaking at 80k miles and a lot of people reported issues at 30k or even earlier. Ford never recalled the radiator despite it being a possible EPA issue with coolant leaking in areas where people and animals could be. Either way, they updated the part and the issues started to go away. I have a feeling that these bearings/clutches/seals will undergo an update and eventually all issues will replace these parts with them. I do hope Ford extends the warranty for people on a certain build date so they can do the right thing and keep their customers for life.
