I have over 15K miles on the replacement pieces. Noise came back after 5K miles. Dealer has seen it twice and said there is no issue. But then again, no serious mile were put on the car, less than 10 miles. Service advisor told me he would charge me $100 to check the car for any TSB items since I am out of bumper to bumper. Same dealership also was hard selling tires for my car since I started taking it there for service. First service, I had to reset my oil monitor.

Have you gone to another dealer for a second opinion? Please let me know, along with your miles.

Took mine in to get the TPM and other tranny related issues fixed. 100-150 miles later, CLUNK. Mine is on the DS. Was never there before they worked on it. Will be addressed when it goes back in to get the tranny fixed AGAIN!

Is this the clunk that happens on sharp turns, especially while going over a bump at the same time?

I've had that since the first two years of owning the car. I even had a dealer engineer sitting in it who said he didn't hear anything amiss; or rather, "every sound he hears is a normal sound."

I've driven the car over a year with the clunk and it hasn't gotten any worse...but I'm a bit worried now that I'm out of warranty....

I still have the clunk, I took it in several times under warranty and they did nothing about it. I have all the paperwork still but I a no longer under warranty. Guess it's too late to have it fixed now.

So was anyone ever able to find the culprit(s) of what seems to be the "infamous" mk3 focus clunk?
