Where did you get that info? I cant find any info on that tsb. Good golly... i hope we have a winner.
It was in the Dealer Connection Broadcast Message yesterday morning. But I don't have access the text of the TSBs newer than September of 2012 yet.

(In hindsight, maybe I shouldn't even be publicly publishing this information?)

Probably not, but the cat's out of the bag now. I used to have access to some of this information, but I don't work for that group and my access has expired since I was unable to change my password from outside their network.

I had access to whatever they published in dealer connection as well as the service manuals and all the tsb/ fsa info at that time, can't see any of it now.

[:(]

Well, I called my dealer and asked about the TSB and he said he'd call me back. Fingers crossed!

I called my tech to make an appointment for an oil change for my ST. He said he had a software update to address the trans shudder and said he would update my wife's Ti's sw when it came in next.

The TSB does exist.

Does anyone have a list of TSB's for the 2013 Focus? Everything I'm seeing only applies to 2012's
I would also be interested in this.

I may be picking up a 2013 Ruby Red SE Hatchback tomorrow, have to see if the driver seat is comfortable, travel 100 mi/day to/from work.

We were also wondering what they will say after we give them info on the trade-in vehicle, 1006 Zx4 Ses w/184,300. miles.

Ok, I went today to my dealer to change my winter tires (I know, late) and after telling him about two episodes I experienced, he checked the car and did the TSB 13-4-6 on mine. TCM reprogramming. I also asked him to perform the TSB for the low washer fluid warning and he did it. And yes, it works ! I see now the message in the center console (of course, my whasher fluid was very law) every time I start the car. Put some fluid on it, message is gone.

What those episodes were ? Start the engine, push the acceleration but the car had almost no power to advance then a hard shift with a bump and back to almost no power. Stop the car, wait 10 seconds and restart, everything ok !

I drove it after the TSB and everything is fine. I hadn't any other problems with the DCT. And yes, I have the "grinding" sound but this is almost since 3000 km. Now, I am at 41 700 km with my 2012 FF.

So it's still grinding, but it drives better? Or has it stopped acting up altogether?

It is still grinding, it drives a bit better (smoother lower gear changes) but it can be everything in my mind. I will let you know in a week, after I test it better.
The DCT was not a real problem for me when I went to the dealer. I wanted only to let you know about this TSB. Maybe someone who has "bumpy" gear changes could use this TSB and talk to his dealer to perform it.

It's a software update to the VIP, not MFT, for those that had to go to the dealer to get 3.0.2 installed. Those were very early 2012 builds. Mine was built in dec. 2012 and my upgrade was 11A03.

For the love of God, can someone get the text of this TSB for me?

See TSB: 13-04-05 for details. 13-04-05
I had this done today. Car definitely seems smoother on low-RPM/low-gear shifts. Will report back in a week or two after transmission learning is over.

So it definitely seems improved. No real shudder at low gears. Almost no hesitation. It's still not *perfect* but it's much more drivable in my eyes. Making left turns across busy traffic is not as terrifying as before, and I noticed that when I come to a stop then go to take off soon after the shudder (as if the gears didn't reset) is gone.

I would recommend this to other DCT owners, but remember: YMMV.

This has been my experience as well.
