2012 Premium Mustang power seat problem

The other night, I went to adjust the height of my seat.. and it seems like the motor for the up/down movement is not working.. the seat moves forwards and backwards properly, and the tilt of the seat bottom seems to work.. but I can't adjust the height .. the motor just 'buzzes' ... grrr... guess I gotta take time off work to bring it to the dealership for a few things now -

Seat motor
Front LCA 'clunking' noise
Vibration at downshifting, around 2500 rpm

Yeah this problem has been discussed here. Some of those motors are just poop. If you are already going in for the LCA issue, all the better. Just grab some time at the dealer and call it a day.

Can you describe your downshifting issue? Can't say I've heard of this one.

apparently the downshifting thing is pretty common in the V6 Manual .. as it's coming down through the RPM range, there's a noticeable vibration that can be felt in the shifter, feels like you're driving over rumblestrips as you pass through 2500 rpms... a lot of people say that it's "normal" .. .but it seems weird to me.. so that's on the list for the dealership to check out.

Well, the engine is only connected to the shifter in some way or another. Sounds normal to me.

Yep, the Deceleration Vibration from 3000-2500 is normal, the fix for that is get rid of the Dual mass flywheel and clutch. But Ford isn't going to pay for that
I did have mine into the Dealer just to have the problem Documented.

Let me get this escalated to the customer service manager for your area, cal_gecko. Please PM me with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and best daytime number so I can help.

About the seat....... I have a 12 GT/CS and the same thing happened to me. Go to the dealer and, if your car is still in warranty, they will fix it for you. No questions asked!

Yeah, I figured that there's nothing that can be done about it, as it seems to be 'normal' .. but I wanted it documented.. hopefully they can get it all done for me today.. I got their shuttle to give me a ride to work.. I'll need to get a ride back to the dealership when they're done, but I definitely need my car to get home at the end of the day!

Regarding the seat motor that no longer works - They're replacing the seat tracks/motors, but have to order it, so I'll have to bring the car back

Regarding the 2500rpm vibration at downshift - They said there were a couple loose transmission mount bolts, which they said would cause the 2500rpm vibration (yeah, right)

Regarding the clunk in the suspension over speedbumps - They said that my 2012 Mustang's VIN didn't fall within any Service Bulletins for suspension noises .. and when the tech had it up on the lift nothing seemed loose

Great.

worthless.
