Hi Joshua90893,

Were you able to get your Focus to your dealer for a diagnosis? If not, I highly encourage you to make an appointment with them. Afterward, please send me your VIN, full name, best daytime phone number, and servicing dealer; I'll see what I can do. :)

Bianca

My 2012 Titanium Hatchback had the transmission shudder under acceleration at 20,000 miles. Took it in to the dealer and they updated the TCM calibration per the TSB. No input shaft seal leak so the clutches were still good. It drives noticeably better and everything was covered under warranty.

I took my 2012 Focus SE into the shop on Friday morning 3/28 and picked it up Saturday evening 3/29. The dealer was very gracious and gave me a loaner for the weekend. As promised, here is the report from the paperwork:

C/S: C/S that there is a transmission shutter (sic)
on accel from stops. Warm or cold
2-3 shift
Verify concern ran Oasis perform prechecks monitor PIDS
RPMS at 611 over acceptable limit perform TSB 14-0047C
Replaced clutch & seals due to leaking on clutch assy
Reprogram PCM & TCM retest verify repair OK

Parts:
BV6Z-7B546-D Clutch assy
AE8Z-7048-B Seal asy - oil
AE8Z-7052-C Seal asy - oil
XT-11-QDC Fluid - transmiss
BV6Z-7B546-D Core return

All of this was covered by warranty and I was charged $0. I was told that it will take ~100 miles for the clutch to break-in by "learning" my driving style. I have 30 miles on it now and it drives like a new car right off the truck. I am very pleased so far.

Thanks to all on this forum, especially Todd (FordService) for your help in getting me here, Heather from Ford for coordinating, and Doug at my local dealer in Fairport who supervised the work on the car!

They updated the IDS a while back to have better programming ability for the adaptive learning on these cars that basically eliminated the need for an adaptive drive cycle. I find when I go on my road test they really don't need to learn themselves anymore. They used to drive like absolute garbage for the first 10 km to the point where you'd think you did something wrong until it ironed itself out. Now with the better programming it feels almost perfect right out of the shop.

Hey all, I just wanted to follow up on my 2012 Focus transmission issue. I took my 2012 Focus Titanium into the shop on Monday morning 3/31 for TSB 14-0047. The dealership had it all week and I picked it up Friday afternoon 4/4. Service report as follows:

A PSV14-0047 TRANSMISSION IS STUDDERING
CAUSE: rsb -14-0047

21467 tsb -14-0047 rd test log slip shudder info well over 500 rpm
reflash pcm /tcm rd test rpm still over 500 rpm remove trans replace
clutch assembly replace both seals per tsb install new axel nuts rd
test reset adaptives shifts as designed 55 140047C

Parts list was similar to twilson92's above, but also included:

2 CV6Z-3B477-A RETAINER

I purchased this vehicle used last Aug 2013 with 19,200 miles and was fully covered by warranty. I wasn't given any instructions regarding what to expect or any breakin period. My son and I have put about 150 miles on it and it drives like a new car (seriously). Even sitting in the passenger seat, my wife could feel how much better it was. I commend Ford for finally making this right for zero cost, but it shouldn't have happened to begin with.

I too thank everyone on this forum. I just registered, and I found a welcoming community willing to help. I also thank Todd (FordService) for his help - it's good to see we have a supportive path into Ford besides our local dealerships.

Hi All,

Just wanted to post my experience here and get a little advice.

I've got a 2012 focus with 55k miles. I first noticed the issue around 20k and had the clutch assembly replaced without much trouble. In the last 5k miles or so, I've noticed the shuddering and grinding noises again, so I brought my car into a different dealer than the one that did the original replacement (I moved). They just called and said all that was needed was a reprogram, and that the clunking/grinding noises I was hearing was my suspension, which they will charge me the $95 inspection fee for since the suspension is not covered in the 60k powertrain warranty. I'm not convinced that it's my suspension...

I mentioned to them the TSB, and asked if they could perform that on my vehicle, and they said that after testing, they determined that all that was needed was a reprogram.

My question is, has anyone had any experience with the reprogram, and does it actually work? My fear is that as soon as I hit 60k, the problem is going to re-appear and I'll be out of luck because now I'm out of warranty.

Any advice?
