Just like others have posted here, I just developed what I call a creaking noise coming from the passenger side rear. It started a few weeks ago and progressively got worse. At first, I only heard it going slowly in reverse but now I hear it going slowly forwards and over bumps. My first attempt to take it in produced the famous "can't reproduce customer's concern". A few days later, I realized why, it was raining that day and the suspension was lubed from the street water. Now I can reproduce the noise by pushing down on the rear of the car when it's dry outside.
 
I took the car back in yesterday morning with a better description on how to re-create the noise. A few minutes ago, the SA called for me to pickup my car. They replaced both sway bar bushings and they say they can't hear the creaking now. We'll see in a few hours when I pick the vehicle up. Of course this happened just past the 36,000 bumper to bumper warranty but luckily I purchased the 84 month, 125,000 mile ESP from my dealer at Flood Fords price.

I took the car back in yesterday morning with a better description on how to re-create the noise. A few minutes ago, the SA called for me to pickup my car. They replaced the strut bushings on both sides and they say they can't hear the creaking now. We'll see in a few hours when I pick the vehicle up. Of course this happened just past the 36,000 bumper to bumper warranty but luckily I purchased the 84 month, 125,000 mile ESP from my dealer at Flood Fords price.

Do you know what the cost would have been without the ESP?

Sorry I don't know what the cost would have been, my paperwork didn't say. Also, I just edited my post to say both sway bar bushings instead of strut bushings. During my ride home, no creaking at all.

my 2013 FFH TI has a rattle as well,  on any road, sitting still, driving, parked etc etc.  I have it narrowed down to static from a speaker I think..after vacation I'll take it in.

 

Power on in the car, sitting the garage, sounds like two small metal sticks hitting each other, louder with seats down.  Power off, no sound at all.  Has to be rear speakers or amp...can't think of anything else that would be making noise back there with power on while sitting still.  I can drown out the noise with radio turned up however.

Verify that the rubber tube on the torsion bars that support the trunk lid are centered so the bars can't touch each other or the underside of the rear shelf.

My trunk lid squeaks badly when opening but also when I'm driving the car and going through some bumps I hear some rattling.  Taking it in today.

I don't have any rattles but my trunk does creak when I open it which you guys are implying is connected. 

 

Is there a TSB for this?

Verify that the rubber sleeve that is on the torsion bars is centered so the bars can't touch each other or the underside of the package shelf.

I have a 2015 FFH with 25000+ miles on it. Love the car but it sounds like I have run over a stick or limb with leaves on it and it is fluttering as I drive.  I have put it on a lift and touched everything I can see but I cannot find the sound or where it is coming from; very annoying. All of the underneath covers, covering the frame and electrical wireing are paper feeling and have a lot of movement with them. some I have taken a nut and washer and put on the bolts that they cover and pulled it up some but even that does not help.

Any Ideas???  PLease?
