|deestop||I have the DCT. . I was just copying off the w.o. from the ford dealer.... (my bad) I reread w.o. It stated, replaced clutch pressure plate, disc OR (missed the or part)pilot bearing. oil seal and a relearn. The vibration was no worse nor better after the replacement.|

|deestop||Have it here as all the other members specify. 2012 titanium. 53k miles.. old post, but maybe resolve will be found for myself and others.. ... I just replaced the PSM.(Passenger side motor mount) Part # AV6Z-6038-A. Amazing how this cured the problem. No vibration at steering wheel or anywhere in dash etc. SMOOTH SMOOTH SMOOTH ..Being the car had such low miles I could not totally buy into all the threads, here in ffx, stating that the mount could be the culprit.. Well it was. Thanks to all that posted on this issue and here is hoping i can help another focus owner.|

^^^Confusing post, describes manual transmission clutch parts including a pilot bearing these don't use - then mentions software updates that are likely for an automatic version (DCT).
Any time the transmission is out mounts may not be returned to the right location, increasing vibrations. They can also be damaged in teh process, particularly the driver's side one that is suspect any time you start to get vibrations and the engine itself is still running properly.

|deestop||2012 focus titanium exact same vibration issue after the clutch pressure plate, pilot bearing replacement and all software updates(warranty). 53000 miles and the vibration from engine transmission at idle in any gear resonating into the cabin area really detracts from the cars likeability|

I just bought a 2013 with 25k miles. Wife and daughter mentioned it vibrated at idle when they test drove it.
Today replaced the RMM with the more firm unit from the electric Focus, and the regular PMM. Vibration at idle is now gone. I've not observed any negatives from using the electric Focus RMM.

My 2012 is now 5 years old and the dealer recently had to take the front subframe down to change the exhaust manifold / cat. When they put it back together my wheel hop was significantly lessened just from putting the original mount back on.
At some point along the way Ford changed the PCM / ECU calibration to run around 800 RPM idle - my car has been updated and now runs 800 RPM idle (880 cold on warm days) regardless of A/C on or off and it used to run in the 680 RPM range. Still vibrates badly though - the car shudders (1/8th inch vibration) when starting and it vibrates enough to rattle light items in door pockets otherwise.
MY08-11 US models also had issues with vibration and the rear motor mount.
My instrument panel cluster rattles too - high pitched scratchy type sound. It mostly quit for a year or so but stupid me pushed on the cluster one day and it got worse.

Cold engines run rougher, and when warmed up, RPMs are allowed to drop, which could make them run rough.
My dealer is worthless and I heard the other 3 or 4 are similar *and all are 30 minute drives). Luckily, a new dealer is being built just 3 miles away, so I'm going to let them have a whack at my rattles, whistles; etc before the 3 years runs out. If I'm not satisfied, my wife's upcoming new car/SUV won't be a Ford.
Anyone else have the plastic "lens" over the speedo rattle? It occurs even while driving, not just idle. My '82 4 cylinder Skylark was my last car that did that! Have a few other dash area rattles developing too.

Oof.... I've had the vibrations for a while now. When idling, the passenger headrest will sometimes be shaking so bad you can see it moving back and forth. You can feel it in the steering wheel, or when your knees are laying against the center console or door.
When driving at highway speed, you can feel the vibrations in the pedals. It's really noticeable if you take the side of your foot and place it against the side of the brake pedal.
I've had it into two different dealers. The most recent time they had it over 3 weeks and all they replaced the clutch for the 2nd time, claimed it fixed the problem, but it's still there more than ever. And to top it off when they replaced the clutch two bolts broke off and they had to drill them out and retap the holes. Ugh.

|Theblueoval||I had these idle vibrations and runnning a bottle of Techron seems to have fixed the issue.|
