Dasfinc They JUST called me, Diff is all fixed, Trunk seal is fixed, and they updated my SYNC system as a courtesy.

The tech couldn't replicate the front suspension moan, might just bring it to a different dealer and try again...

Dasfinc Power Train warranty has quite some time before it ends, I'll drive it through snow to the dealer if need be this winter to prove its got an issue. I don't care if I have to wait 3 months for a trans to arrive if its in December

put in good rear end fluid and trans fluid to see if that helps.

how much adjustment are we talking about on the vert top, 1" or less, if any more press the issue once you find a better dealer.

ive been told "we cant replicate that" so i showed them myself and had the problem occur, so they new exactally what was going wrong and why.

you might need to have the service writer guy take a ride with you to show them. techs arnt always willing to really look into stuff under warranty as they make less money on warranty stuff.
I don't mind the little stuff to be honest, still LOVE the car, I still think I'm just sour about the back to back experience between Mini and Ford.

I didn't expect I'd get flack for that.

I'm disappointed that the other 'used car' issues it has they are full-stop unwilling to correct or are pulling the 'it works fine' card :-/

Dasfinc Crush sleeve and pinion bearings are being replaced.

They told me to pound sand on everything else except the trunk seal that was leaking.

your blowfish bracket doesnt doesnt mess with any internal parts.. just leave it on
I left the bracket on mine, but since I haven't had a COMPLETE failure yet, I fear they will just blame the Whine on the bracket. I didn't see the old service manager there, so hopefully things will still go smoothly. The service writer I got was some rude older guy.

SleeperLS I would take that bracket off if you think it is the trans. I could see Ford saying the extra ridgidity cause pre-mature failure.

Hell, I'd be happy even if he can just confirm that they don't have some crazy new Nazi-policy about mods when there are trans issues.
