Rammin88 is on a distinguished road

I had the same grinding noise. Got the TC replaced and it does NOT make the noise anymore. And better yet, the drivetrain is 100% smoother. You can barely feel it shift. I posted a picture of the document for the star case that my tech gave me. It's under "That grinding noise update". You'll see a link to for the picture of the document. Print it out and show it to your dealer. The noise you are hearing is not normal and don't let your dealer tell you that. If they tell you to wait for a TSB tell them no and say it with some seriousness. I went into my dealer and said I want it fixed. And they did it with no problem....suprisingly. Just remember, they are there to make you happy. You are their boss. If the service manager won't help you, ask to speak to his boss. I just hate when people get walked on by dealers. I don't let that happen to me.
