Hi. My car's build date was Aug 2, one day after the cut-off for the TSB. My dealer recognized that my car had the same problem as outlined in the TSB and elected to simply repair the problem under the car's warranty. The dealer said it was easier to do it this way than try to convince Ford Motor Co. to fix the car under the TSB. It didn't matter to me as long as the problem was repaired which it was. I believe that Ford was too quick to assign a cut-off date for the TSB as there were probably defective steering racks already on the assembly line. The service department at my dealer followed the TSB to repair my car. Good luck in getting your car repaired. The problem is not only annoying, but is a major safety issue in my opinion and there should have been a recall on these cars.
