So I brought the Focus into the shop yesterday to check out the clicking when turning on/off high beams, fog lights, and putting the car in and out of reverse, and also the clunking sound coming from the rear. They couldn't find anything wrong regarding the clicking noise, and they didn't see anything wrong with the suspension from the lift (they couldn't test drive because it was snowing out). They did replace some wiring harness for the active grill shutter recall (which I thought only came on the SFE version but I guess not?)

They said I could drop it off one day and have them go test drive it for those sounds.

No, the active grille shutter system was originally only advertised as a part of the SFE package, but was installed semi randomly (depending on region and features) across all Job 1 2012 Foci, and then by late job 1, and officially listed on the order guide as standard for pretty much all job 2 builds (cars built on or after 3/5/12).

Thanks for the clarification, I've always wondered if my car had them or not.

Oh okay, I've never actually looked closely since I thought I didn't have this. I'll have to check it out.

Hi HornedFrog05,

I wanted to touch base with you and see how your Focus is doing. Did the clunk go away?

As of right now it is clunk free; however, this is usually the case after it's in the shop. I'm going to give it a few weeks before I determine if it's "fixed" or not.
