Unhappy '13 Focus DPS6 Fault Code P2701??

70K miles, Letter from Ford saying TCM, Clutches, Seals are covered. Driving at highway speed and my cars trans slips out of gear and TRANSMISSION FAULT SERVICE NOW. No warning or symptoms prior on an otherwise beautiful car. now is slamming into gears, slipping, causing the car to die

I was relieved that there is a campaign to cover known issues but all that went away (along with the color in my face) when Ewald Venus Ford called me and said "Yeah sorry, not covered. Itll cost you $1500 to open it up and find out whats wrong".

I asked them to please email me the code(s) as follows:

P2701:00-68-TCM transmission friction element B apply time/range/performance

They think the throw-out bearing is bad or possibly a shift fork/actuator/motor is bad or stuck. I have scoured the threads and stickies and found little to do with this code. It sounds like either way the trans is going to have to come out.

If anyone has any info or experiences regarding this code can you please share?

Best Regards
