Default Clunking noise in the rear 2012 V6

Actually I'm not sure it should be called " clunking". It sounds like something is loose and hits another part when the car goes over some bumps. At first I thought it was the seat belt hitting the interior but of course it's not. And I checked up the trunk and nothing there seemed to cause this noise.

So it is probably the rear suspension? The noise mainly comes from rear driver side. By the way the rear passenger side suspension made some creaking noise temporarily for two days last week but it disappeared now. Could these two kinds of noise come from the same reason?

And is it possible that other parts like rear seats cause this noise?

I have the 2011, but my little brother has the 2012. His started making the same noise right after he purchased the car. Handling didn't feel right either and so he took it back to the dealership. They checked the rear suspension and had to order some new parts. Told him it would be a few weeks because Ford had to "re-design" the bushings due to several failures. I will check with him and find out exactly what they replaced, but it was covered under warranty and the "clunking" is gone.

Just checked with him. They had to replace the sway bar end links. Have your dealership check these and keep us posted.

Hmph. I've actually had a bit of thumping on the rear end, passenger side, and chalked it up to my panhard shifting abruptly about it's mount with it's rod end. Will be sure to check on the swaybar end links sometime this week/end, appreciate the heads up, guys.

Hi vrships,

Welcome to the forum! My name is Deysha with Ford Service, and I also recommend bringing your vehicle in to your Ford dealer for diagnosis. Then, PM me with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and best daytime number so I can escalate this to the customer service manager for your area.

You should also bring your vehicle in to your dealer and let me know the outcome, Fik.

Mine is a pre-owned. But I'm pretty sure no noise at all in the first few weeks since I got it. And no handling problem now, just the annoying noise. Yeah I'll go to the dealer to have it checked. Hope they won't tell me nothing wrong in the end.

Thx for ur information!

I had these replaced under warranty. I was getting a rubbery clunking sound when going over bumps as well.

Same here. Replaced the left side after 10k kms. 4 weeks later, the right side needed to be replaced.

Glad I found your thread. Mine started making a clunking sound too about 2 weeks ago. I just got lowering spring and am hesitant to install them before I take it to the dealer. I don't want them saying, "Oh it must be those lowering springs making the noise". Need to give the dealer a call in the morning.

At the dealer now and Price Ford has been great. Found that the e-brake cable looked like it was hitting against the control arm. They also did the TSB for the tranny going into gear hard in cold weather. Great service!!
