I have a 2014 Ford Raptor Screw that has 73,000 miles on it. I had a grinding noise that started several months ago. I initially thought it was related to the IWE/Solenoid/Check valve. So on 03/11/2019 Battlefield Ford Service in Manassas, VA replaced the IWE and also checked the check valves and hoses. They said there were no leaks. But the grinding noise continued. After research I was sure it was related to the 5-3 Downshift "SQUAWK" issue seen in some F-150s and Raptors. So I dropped it off on 4/22/19 and left it with them. After a few days the transmission tech confirmed the grinding noise. Smaller fixes did not resolve the issue and they concluded they needed to take the transmission out to further diagnose. However, on 5/2/19 I was told they needed to first get “approval” from Ford prior to doing this. I wonder what is involved in this approval process because that was 12 days ago. When I purchased my Raptor I also bought a 5 year / 75,000 mile extended warranty. My Raptor has 73,000 miles on it and it also meets the 2020 warranty expiration date requirement. So I’m covered. So it’s been sitting in a service bay at the Battlefield Ford Service Department for over 3 weeks! I even talked to another dealership where I bought my vehicle and they said this wait is sometimes typical. It just depends on a case by case basis.
