    I looked for a search button, couldn't find one so here goes, just have a 2014 base , 6 speed, when I engage the clutch, usually in first to second gear I'm hearing a clunk coming from the rear, it's done it from the start, is this a normal thing for the newer fords-- CHOP

    I guess what I was asking is, if any of you with a a newer 6 speed Mustang had the same sound as I'm hearing, kinda sounds like U joint noise, this can't be a normal sound when shifting, usally 1st to 2nd and downshifting from 2nd to 1st, I'd like to hear from you guys before I take it in-- CHOP

    I get some clunking, but I've read that it's just the 2 piece drive shaft on it. you'll hear it when slowing down to a near stop, putting it in first then taking off? that's when I hear it.

    You guys should have them checked out by your Ford Dealers and let me get this escalated to the customer service manager for your area if needed. Please, PM me with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and best daytime number.

    I mean, I'm not too worried honestly because if you google it, mustangs are known for being loud cars in terms of clunking. what I've heard is it's the 2npiece drive shaft just catching up when you slow down

    Lol! Oops, I almost forgot about you, Choppertwo. ;)

    I understand, jayochs. If things get worse or you ever bring it in, let me know.
