Well I just started hearing the grinding noise during gear shifts as mentioned here. It became apparent after driving long distances as others have mentioned as well. It doesn't happen too frequently right now, but I'm assuming it will occur more as time goes on. My car is at about 15,000 miles now and I've had a few TSB updates performed already. When I was home this past week, my Dad actually commented on how jerky the gear shifts were in lower gears, and this was right before I started hearing the grinding noises. From the people that have gone through this already, what do you think the best way to get this looked at/addressed would be? Bring it to the dealer first and see what they say? Contact FordCustomerService and go through them right away? I haven't been able to reproduce the noise consistently yet so I don't want to bring it to the dealer if they're just going to laugh it off.
