That's not the build date... go to www.etis.ford.com and input your VIN, and that will give the build date (and no your car is not a Transit Connect)

 

 

Ahh this shows June 15th. Even later. Thanks.

Thanks for the info. I have been hearing a loud ping/click every now and then, but didn't realize it was an issue. I sent an email to my dealer with the service bulletin asking them what needs to be done to get this fixed.

Mine is going in on Friday for the TSB fix, along with the fuel efficiency reprogram that's showing in ETIS as an outstanding field action.

So they actually have the re-programing for fuel efficiency available at this time?

If you are refering to the PCM software update, then yes. It was installed on my FFH yesterday.

Finally able to get mine fixed, after a month and a half mess of trying to get my leaking tail light replaced and being told that they wouldn't look at the car for the clicking noise until the tail light was in. I go in today to drop the car off to get the light replaced and they inform me that they have the parts to fix the half shafts as well which was an amazing suprise.  Unfortunately got stuck with a '11 Focus Hatch rental which is slightly amusing for my 6'7" frame to get in and out of.  Hoping they can apply the PCM update as well as look into the 12v battery issue and a few other minor things that way it all gets out of the way at once.  Either way I will be very happy that the clicking noise is gone as it has become extremely loud and annoying over the month or so.

After seeing this im glad to see that the fix was issued on all builds after 4-14. Mine got the window sticker printed on 4-19 so i know its clean. Hopefully the same date applys on the MKZ as id guess there the same factory.

Hi Guys,

I got my TSB done yesterday for the click/pop noise. Had to wait for a month for the thrust washer kit to arrive. They did both sides and so far it looks like the problem is fixed.. no noise like before.

 

While the car was at the dealership, I had them take care of the safety recall for fuel delivery module and the powertrain reprogram for improved fuel efficiency.  They did replace the fuel delivery module. I didnt see any noticable improvements in fuel efficiency yet, as not many miles after the reprogram.

 

With the reprogram, I did notice that the car doesn't remember my home/office locations. Previously when I'm close to my home/office, it will go into EV+ mode but that didn't happen last night which I'm assuming the reprogram erased. Anyway, I guess its just a matter of few more days before it will pick them up.

 

(sorry to go off topic on the reprogram..)

I believe this occurred on all who had the 13B07 update, as the EV+ locations were wiped out... it will remember them again, just has to have a few repeated trips again to 'learn' them again.

Mine was making the noise - then about a month ago it stopped making it altogether without applying a fix.  Any idea if this is a good thing?  I don't want to take it in for the fix if it's okay, but I'm worried now that the absence of the crack means something's gone horribly wrong down there.

Finally got the cracking sound fixed in my car this week.  My car is finally quiet again. Also had the dealer apply the TSB 13B07 - POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE (PCM) CALIBRATION. No noticeable difference except maybe I can enter EV mode at 62+.

 

Glad this forum was here to help us all track this issue down.

If Ford has a TSB to fix something I don't think you should ignore it. 

If your car has the symptoms, even if they appear to be gone, it probably is a good idea to have it serviced and the proper parts installed.

The service also puts the ball in Ford's court - your car had a problem, you followed their suggestion regarding repair and the history of your actions is recorded.

Why drive the car and worry about it?

Is this TSB only covered under warranty? My car is out of warranty and now with this noise.. If not covered then I would likely just order the part and tackle it myself.
