I have a 12 SEL 160ishk on it. Immediately after putting new summer tires on my Titanium wheels the DCT crapped on me, Transmission friction element A stuck on. I replaced clutch solenoid A to no avail. Ford of course says it needs clutches, which it does also according to their test, but that doesn't explain the craziness it is displaying or the code. It's not clutch slip I am experiencing. It gets stuck in the wrong gears and has serious trouble launching and accelerating sometimes. Makes some rough noises. On rare occasions it works ok. Sport and manual are locked out when it acts up usually. Manually shifting odd or even gears doesn't seem to prove much. I told them forget the clutches for now, based on the symptoms I described they agreed with me it sounded like a possible TCM. That wasn't it.So far no one wants to make them, so we are sourcing a wet clutch auto trans to replace the dct, we will advise once we have parts in house to test

Bought my wife an 18 Mazda6 to replace it. Still have the car though and would like to fix it. Now based on the tidbits I've dug up on the Internet it sounds like either clutch levers or more likely the case itself wore out where the clutch levers pivot? I am wondering what you think and what it would cost to have you swap in as late a model junkyard DCT as we can attain at reasonable cost.
I am planning to ask Ford as well but I'm not sure they would put a used one in, and what they would charge. I would consider a manual swap as well but I like the DCT when it works and I'm guessing that would be cheaper?
