Yes many times and that is why the clutch has had many revisions also otherwise they would just keep revising the seals only until the clutch housing was dry.
Thank you for the clarification. Just wondering, do you feel Ford has found a solution for the leaking seals and the clutch shudder? How many brown seal sets has your service department installed have returned for leakage?

We have at least a few on FocusFanatics that feel Ford is making zero progress in the DCT seal leaking and clutch chatter problems. I find it interesting that you differ from others by saying the brown seals work.
