The thrum noise in question has been one of many issues I have had to deal with on my 2016 Transit. The noise has been constant since new, and has changed little once my conversion was completed.
Having had a very bad experience watching a dealer flounder away at my many other problems, I would be reluctant to take my van in for this elusive problem. The Transit experience has been a big disappointment for me. I had no idea how difficult it could be to get competent service expertise.
Having been a Ford fan for years, its hard to own up to this.
