Ford Emblem flaking and cloudly

Recommended Posts

My front and rear ford emblems are showing signs of corrosion. The front is worse. The front emblem was replaced a couple years back. I showed my dealer 6 months ago and they said it's not bad enough. Shouldn't ford replace this again? It's much more noticeable now.

The chrome peeled right off of the emblem and front grill on my Orange Crush along with the mirrors.

My 2011 had the same issue on the front and it was replaced under warranty Maybe it was a bit worse than that but not by much. The dealer said they had to take a picture and send it into Ford for approval. The same thing happened again and it was replaced a second time under warranty. I don't look closely at it now the bumper-to-bumper has expired.

 

It looks like clear plastic over the chrome with the problem under that. It is probably moisture seeping in a causing the cloudiness.

My dealer handed me a new one for my 2011 when it was still under warranty a few years ago but I have not put it on yet. It's kinda sad that the part Ford uses to advertise their name brand is a piece of corroding junk. I'll take a better look at the old emblem when I swap it out to see if there's any way to prevent these from peeling and corroding.
