I guess I have only seen part of the TSB (a description of the problem). Do you have a complete version that states the clutch be replaced? I would like to have that information when I talk to my dealer.

Sure.

11-12-13 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAK

Publication Date: December 23, 2011

FORD: 2012 Focus


ISSUE:
Some 2012 Focus vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission may exhibit a transmission fluid leak from the transmission clutch housing.

ACTION:
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

Inspect the base of the transmission clutch housing for evidence of transmission fluid leak. Transmission fluid will be slick versus sticky.
If the fluid leak is sticky and honey colored, it may be mistaken for engine oil or transmission lubricant. This condition may be caused by excessive rust inhibitor applied to the flywheel during manufacturing. Wipe clean the rust inhibitor from the transmission housing with Motorcraft® Metal Brake Parts Cleaner or equivalent.
Is transmission fluid present at the base of the transmission clutch housing?
Yes - Proceed to Step 3.
No - This procedure does not apply. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 307-11 for normal diagnostics.
Replace both the inner input shaft seal, located between both input shafts and the hollow outer input shaft case seal. Refer to WSM, Section 307-01.
Verify clutch self-adjusters are locked on clutch assembly. Refer to WSM, Section 307-01.
Install a new Clutch Assembly Kit. Follow instructions provided in the kit.
NOTE: CLUTCH SELF ADJUSTER LOCKS MUST BE RELEASED BEFORE TRANSMISSION IS INSTALLED OR CLUTCH WILL NOT OPERATE.



Install the transmission assembly. Refer to WSM, Section 307-01.
Perform Adaptive Drive Cycle. Refer to WSM, Section 307-01.
NOTE: FAILURE TO PERFORM ALL STEPS OF THE ADAPTIVE LEARNING ROUTINES AND THE DRIVE CYCLE MAY RESULT IN ERRATIC SHIFTS AND DRIVEABILITY CONCERNS
