my car is in the shop, i went by to see it, they took the tranny down, and they found the clutch in 2 pieces, and some heat spots on the pressure plate...
they told me they would call ford tomorrow to see if is going to be cover under warranty.
i don't know what to do, they are telling me that they can't do anything untill they know if ford wants to pay for it...

i'm thinking if they don't pay for it, i will not pay like 1500 for them to fix it, i'll be better off buying a centerforce stage 3 or something like that and put it together my self for half of that...

what should i do?


ps: there are pics of the clutch in my profile...

It all depends if they will cover it if so then thats fine either way your going to have to pay for DISSEMBLY and if you get that STAGE 3 CLUTCH i would just make them install it since its already out. You really cant do anything until you hear the final word from FORD. i can even check your warranty for you if you want i just need your VIN off your car.

I just went through the exact same thing. Get ready to shell out some cake . I spent 2 weeks arguing with Ford and got nothing. Unless you have a really good dealer ship your screwed. The dealership that did mine is a bunch of jackoffs. Good luck

how much did u spend on it?
why didn't they pay for it, what was their excuse?

when i 1st bought the car, the clutch went, but since it was in the 30 days or whatever they changed it, i paid 100 for the deduc... and the owner of the dealership, paid for the part that wasn't cover... i was working there at the time, only for 2 months....
i don't know what they going to do, i've had a headache all day just thinking about the car and how much this sh!t could cost me...
