I get regular ford only services and they always do the flush causrs me no issues so i leave them to it its recommended so not so fussed the upgraded vct units that replaces the one you have in seem more robust its not unusual volvos have the same issue and so do some hondas its the fact ive seen some who hear the injector slap and think its the vct unit injector slap is normal on the newer focuses you dont hear it as they put padding under the bonnet but open one on start up you hear it clear as day

If all is okay brake wise then it would come down to driving style ie keeping youre foot on the brake when they are hot secondly is overloading the car third is excessive breaking or riding the brakes obviously a sticky piston will also cause this so ide consider that yes the caliper slides but the piston may be stuck in or not returning properly also the brand of disks can be the reason cheap discs like some ebay brands are rubbish

it does indeed and it wont harm it ford will do a flush on it during a service when i asked why they explain that the vct relies on oil pressure to work and if the oil galleries get restricted even slightly it can cause issues thats why they give it a flush ive had no issues since this has been done
