Now if only FordPass could work consistently.
Why would the dealer contact you?

My dealer has been working on this issue with a salespersons truck.
Are the dealers not informed of new TSB's that come out?

they are but they don't contact customers

a TSB is not a recall. It is only done if the customer complains and they verify the concern

It has worked for me thus far. 3 drives since I picked it up this morning and I haven't heard the rattle at all.

Anyone notice any other difference besides the rattle gone with the update?

Absolutely no difference other than the rattle so far.

Well that lasted all of.......10 hours. The rattle has already returned!!! It's exactly like it was before. I had no parts replaced, only had the TSB performed. Very disappointed right now
