Back in Feb the update didnt work hence the dual clutch kit replacement was done . The update "helped" temporarily but then the grind came back Within a few days many times worse. So i fear the updates dont help. But looking at that document published in Sept, the dual clutch kit on there is the same one that's in my car now. :/

Hmm. Well if your still under the Bumper to Bumper and dont mind a little down time or time in a rental, Id say give the recent TSB a chance.

Mk3 Recalls and TSBs

Never had any of the TSB done to my 2012 focus s... 10900 miles and im getting a small shudder occassionally when going into 1st from a stand still... no leaks as far as i can tell... and everything else works as it should... should i be considering this tsb for just this occasional shudder? (No warranty so ill be paying)

Anyone else have this TSB done? Any feedback? Would be much appreciated.

Sent from my SM-N900T using FF Mobile

Edit: guess it was just the adaptive drive cycle after a battery reset. Runs very smoothly now!!

INTELLIGENT ACCESS SMART UNLOCK INOPERATIVE

TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN

Reference Number(s): 13-12-13, Date of Issue: November 28, 2013
FORD: 2013 C-MAX; 2013-2014 Focus; 2013-2014 Escape
ISSUE

Some 2013 C-MAX, 2013-2014 Escape and Focus vehicles equipped with Passive Entry-Passive Start (PEPS) and Intelligent Access (IA) may exhibit a customer concern of intermittent IA Smart Unlock function at the left or right front door is inoperative. This may be due to a salt, water, dirt film which has developed on internal components of the exterior front door handle.

I just had the tsb 13-09-04 done. A couple weeks ago my Focus started lugging when accelerating from a stop. It was like starting in second gear with a manual transmission. I was told the service tech said that this was normal but the service advisor told the tech this customer knows what is normal and this is outside what was normal. The tech took it for a test drive, confirmed the problem, and preformed the tsb. The tranny now has to relearn my heavy foot driving style but so far no lugging from stops.

Went in for an oil change last week. Ford told me their was an seal leak. they must have done the TSB and have now ordered a clutch kit how long did you wait on parts? Ford has been good so far and put us in a rental

I did not have a seal leak. All they needed to do was reprogram the PCM and TCM.

yeah. Logged on to see if it was just me, as my car seems to have a mind of its own as to when it feels like unlocking.

:edit: boooo, i can't curse.

found some diy info:
-remove door panel
-remove handle with 2-T6 screws
-wash handle components, let dry
-spray with a polymer shield, let dry
-re-assemble
