I also had a popping noise from my front end (09 SES), going over bumps usually. Took it to the dealer and they actually used the same TSB. They started with the sway bar links, but that didn't work, which I figured anyway because I looked at the front end and couldn't see any issues with anything "visual". Then they proceeded to the next step, replacing the control arms. Oddly enough, this didn't resolve it either. Then the mechanic had an idea and he was right. Here it was a bolt on the rack and pinion, once he tightened the bolt the noise was gone. After and alignment I was good to go. My focus only had about 16,000kms on it when the issue occurred.

they shouldn't.... unless a problem that happened pertaining to your intake actually happened....... which these do not actually pertain to it....

i have a CAI and my dealer has said nothing about it............

Had my fiancee's car at the dealer 3x for this in the past year. They said they "couldn't find anything wrong with it" or they "couldn't duplicate a popping noise".

I will be taking the car back there and stuffing this printout in the service managers face, as he was a jerk about it the 3rd time we had the car in there.

there is a TSB on it i believe..... i don't know the number. the TSB states its the splash gaurd in the wheel well needs to be cut back but its actually some nuts around it..... i don't know which one it is but one side doesn't do it and i don't have an impact that is hard enough for it......

I have the same problem. It started with the popping noise, which only occurred when turning hard to the right, and only on the right wheel. I thought it was just my messed up splash guard catching on the wheel, but I guess not. I've also now developed some squeaks in the suspension. 61k miles.

My 2010 S is also doing this very badly. Did you replace the tires? If so, did it help?
