Talking Must Read New Clutch!!!!!!!

Hi i live in New York. I brought my car to the dealership in mass. where i bought. i am on my third clutch because they havent come out with a good one yet. well the other day i changed my oil to synthetic. when i had it up on the lift i saw oil on the bottom of my transmission. so i brought it back. and the clutch is shot again. so i said find out whats wrong and change the clutch . the guy calls me today and says that the oil on the transmission was from my axle seal being bad. i was planning on picking my car up on saturday. but he told me the news that i have been waiting hear for 4 months. he called ford up and asked about the new clutch they are building for the SVT. Well to my surprise it is coming out either this week or next week and i will be one of the first to have it in thier car. so the dealership said keep the loaner till the part bulletin comes out and we can get your new clutch assembly in. just thought you guys would like to hear that. cus i know im xcited for that shizznit. no more rattling when im in neutral. hopefully i get my car by next saturday and i will post on how it feels if it is any different. pizzle my nizzle from the dizzle wizzle gizzle nah mizzle.

sounds good, you got to let us know how the new clutch is when you get your focus back.

Does anyone know if they have/will issue a TSB for the new clutch? I have 5400 miles on my car with no problems...yet. But, I heard the clutch warranty is only for 12,000 miles, so I'd like to get it replaced as a piece of mind.

I talked to Mike at SVT in mid Jan. He said that there was no new clutch or flywheel comming out or being made for the SVTF, he also said that he had heard of rumors of this. He could have been blowing smoke up my hole, I dunno. And it was about a month ago, if true great!!!

I've read and heard about the new improve clutch for the SVTF. With all the problems associated with the old clutch, Ford should replace the old with the new, anytime during your factory warranty if you ask me.
