Not that I've seen. Unless by 'help' you mean telling you that there's nothing they can do if the dealership says it's normal.

A grinding transmission is not normal - it is the sound of your transmission being worn out prematurely. You don't need to be an expert to be sure of this so don't let the "experts" try to pull the wool over.
It's not 'worn out prematurely' if it makes it to the end of the warranty period. That's all that matters to Ford.

Good luck.
You'll need it.
