Was your car built before June 5, 2013?

Congratulate them? For taking more than 2 years to "fix" a shaft seal?

Keep in mind that is was clearly in their best interest (as a business) to fix any and all known problems with the DCT.

Remember, it took Ford 2 years to fix the 1997-1998 F-150 4.2 timing seal leaks too. And took them infinite years (as in wait until it went out of service) to fix the 3.8 V6 front wheel drive application blown head gaskets, and infinite years (as in wait for it out of service) to fix the 2.0 SPI engine's cylinder head dropping of valve seats.

Well, I don't know how to feel about this. My 2014 has a build date of 11/22/2013. So I guess I'm not covered by this. But I also guess that means I have the "new" clutch pack, etc.

I will say that I have about 5500 miles on the car and have had no issues.

Does anyone know when the "Rev D" clutch packs came out? I, for one, had a "Rev D" clutch pack installed in September 2013 -- after the June 2013 build date cutoff -- though my 2013 SE was built in October 2012. And yet, that Rev D clutch still need to be replaced due to fluid leaking. They replaced it just this week, but used the same clutch pack (Rev D) and input shaft seals (part numbers line up) as they did in September 2013. However, they said the culprit this time was a different seal, which they claim to have fixed this time as opposed to last time. So I am hoping and praying that the reason "Rev D" and its new seals did not work for me the first time was that the fix was not complete, as opposed to that the Rev D clutch pack and seals do not get the job done.

Has anyone else had a Rev D repair, post-June 2013, which has since failed and been re-done? If so, did the dealer tell you why?

Actually, the biggest problem may be getting Ford to acknowledge that you need a new clutch and seals. it will depend on how strict the latest TSB is in regard to the "tolerance" that is acceptable to Ford. Not everybody is going to automatically get a new clutch and seals.
I read the technical info and it basically mirrors the current TSB. They flash the PCM first , then do the RPM test. If the seals need replacing, you clean the clutch first and if it eventually needs it, it has to be called to Ford for authorization before we order a new clutch. The big change for us (I work in a Ford parts dept) is we no longer have to order each piece (seals and hardware) separately. It all comes as a kit now. Makes it more easy for us. It also says to use either the D or F clutch. I think Ford wants to use up all the D kits till the supply runs out. That's just my useless opinion though. LOL My wife's car has slippage in 2nd gear only that is bad at times and non existent at times also. The last RPM test it shuddered at 242 rpms. I think I'll wait till either it gets real bad or before 100,000 miles (it has 43,000 as I type).

Mine was done last fall and is shuddering and grinding again. I was going to have it redone two weeks ago when I was on vacation, but couldn't get the car to the dealer before we left. I have to get it back there again, but I think now I will wait until the Rev D clutch packs are out of inventory.

That is one of the more vexing aspects of the problem. It comes and goes and you have to pray you get it to the dealer on one of the bad days, otherwise you will be wasting more time with additional trips to the dealer.

And this is why I have always think it's a program issue that causes the clutch to slip, making it ineffective after so many thousand of miles. Yes, the seals go bad too, but mine is dry as a bone and I have been looking for it at every oil change. But what do I know, I'm not an engineer. LOL

You won't necessarily see a leak from the shaft seals without opening the transmission housing.
