Sort of sounds like a stick shift.
Never gave it much thought.
I've driven stick shifts for 45 years and never heard one grind like my Focus.
As recommended by my regional manager, I stopped by my Ford dealership. I explained what the engineers said. The sevice manager said he was sympathetic because he knows I have a problem. He has another 2012 Focus with the same noisey trans. The manager said, to be honest, Ford does not know how to fix this problem. They know it's a problem, many cars have it, but they will not admit that they don't have a fix.
Until I figure out another option, I will be bringing my car in for service every Tuesday. I need documentation.
