Almost similar sound to that video posted on youtube quoted many times on the forum. Problem seems to occur only when shifting from gear 1 to 2 and when coasting to a stop. Will continue to monitor for the next few days before bringing it in to the dealer.
Unbelievable Ford are still putting inferior parts into the 13's knowing that this is going to happen. From what others have been able to gather, the replacement clutches are more robust in some way.
