New van needs transmission

1900 mi. We had a heavy rain and the TCM got wet causing the trans. to malfunction and fry the clutch plates. Looks like I have a new van with a rebuilt trans. T250 Diesel. In the shop waiting for parts. One thing to note, to pull the pan to inspect, the entire front steering cross member,cowlings, wheels brakes you name has to be unbolted. So I asked the mechanic about changing fluid and filter service, his reply "figure about 8 hrs plus parts"

yes, but Ford tells them what to do if they want to get paid.

Should it be still under warranty?

Just curious, how did TCM get wet? I have the same van-hoping that your situation was an unfortunate random occurrence. Ford should stand behind that and make it right.

Thirty days in the shop is something you can use in a lawsuit, not an automatic new van law. If Ford hasn't told you they are replacing it, they aren't. Not without a fight. You will need an attorney.
