Mk3 Recalls and TSBs
Figured Id make this thread as it will be useful for potential buyers and owners, now and in the future. Also because I want to know what tsbs are out there right now so that when my parents get their focus it can have those addressed before it leaves the driveway. Would be nice if this got stickied too. So post up known Tsb's and recallls. All I got now is the TSB for MFT that just came out. And the steering one.

Can someone post the full TSB information for the Steering Service Bulletin above?
Some 2012 Focus vehicles equipped with electric power assisted steering (EPAS) and built on or before 04/19/2011 may exhibit a lack of power steering assist on vehicle start up and may exhibit a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) C102D. The customer will see Steering Assist Fault Service required message, the steering wheel icon, and a yellow dot in the instrument cluster, and hear the soft warning chime. Steering assist will remain for that key cycle. For the next key cycle at vehicle startup, the customer will see Steering Loss Stop Safely message, the steering wheel icon, and a red dot in the instrument cluster, and hear the hard warning chime. Steering assist will be removed for that key cycle and all future key cycles.
Reprogram the power steering control module (PSCM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 72.04 and higher or 73.01 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2011.5 DVD. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com.
NOTE: DIFFERENT MODULES MAY GENERATE DTC'S DURING REPROGRAMMING OF THE PSCM. FOLLOW IDS INSTRUCTIONS TO CLEAR DTC'S FROM ALL MODULES.

Thanks guys. I was hoping this was the one for the steering "wander" at highway speeds that has been posted at length on this forum. Mine isn't doing it but we have a customer that has complained about it. Bringing up the concern in the system does not show a TSB.
This thread deserves a sticky and maybe a moderator can add a post up top that can be updated with all the TSBs so we dont have to search through the thread?
FORD: 2012 Focus
This article supersedes TSB 12-1-2 to update the production fix date and Part List.
Some 2012 Focus vehicles built on or before 12/12/2011 may exhibit a steering wander at highway speeds over 72 Km/h (45 MPH). Customers may indicate they have to frequently adjust the steering wheel slightly to maintain the direction of travel.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
Saw it a little late but it out there
Replace the Steering Gear. Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 211-00.
