Officially no, unofficially maybe. The TSB currently doesn't have an end date listed for when parts were changed in production, however it currently doesn't list the 2014 MY.

Depending on when the car was built it's possible that they are not using the new mounts yet.

I got a call from Ford last week and dropped off the car this morning. I told them not to touch the clutch line or anything other than the motor mounts and they said they will not be able to keep the warranty valid without doing the entire TSB. So I told them to be sure to bleed it properly and I want the old parts. They told me they would take care of it. I dont know if that is a good or bad thing. I guess I will find out.

Yeah, you can't really pick and choose which parts you want done under a TSB, it's all or nothing. You might or might not be able to see the old parts, but seeing as the customer paying for the service is Ford they will want their old parts back to prove that the dealer did the work correctly.

Just hope that they are familiar with the bleeding proceedure for the 6MT's clutch and don't cross contaminate the brakes as well by association since they share chambers in the same reservoir.

Got the car back this evening. They did the complete TSB and they kept the parts. Everything feels fine but I literaly pulled out of the dealer and into traffic so I didn't get to test it until tonight. It feels 100% better. The clutch pedal is a little tinny bit slower to come back up but not really to much different than before. I can now spin the tires in 3rd gear without a bang. yay!!! I am happy with the fix. I did have to reset the auto up and down on the windows. There is a rest procedure. I think you roll the window down and hold when is stops when all the way down for 5 sec then roll the window up and hold up for 5 sec when the window is all the way up. Or the other way around. If I am wrong, someone please correct me.

I finally got mine fixed last week, and yes 100% better.

My windows were messed up also, but I thought it was becasue they had to replace a door handle on mine and they had to get into the door to do so, and I thought they screwed something up. But then a few days later it worked fine.

This morning I opened the rear driver door to find the inside red door reflector on the floor that was supposed to be on the inside of the driver side door. The arm rest where the window button is on the rear driver side door was ripped off. Inspect your vehicle when you pick it up from the dealership. I called them and they are going to replace every broken or disturbed piece. I think someone took it for a lil bit of a joy ride.

TSB is a Band-Aid

Had the TSB finally done. Requested it a week after it came out, and it got done 4+ months later. It helped a little bit. Still had bang and wheel hop issues. Put a Cobb in 2 weeks ago. Almost fixed the bang, and really improved the handling. Buzz at low RPM's was bad at first, has gotten better.
Ford has stuck their head in the sand on this. I will be buying a Corvette soon. Build quality on this car is poor, hood gap is crazy. How can you ship a car with a huge gape like that. My last Ford.

Not much activity on this issue lately.., Well I picked up a used 2013 ST with just 300 miles on it in June of 2014 and brought it to the dealer 8-2-14 after hearing about and experiencing the same issue.

The service adviser has told me they ordered the parts and have all but one.

I'm beginning to feel like they are screwing around with this. He also said the dealership has never done this particular TSB...

Should I bail and find another dealer?
