Default Aluminum hood corrosion issue ..05' mustangs

Anyone had any paint problems with they're hoods on 05' s? My hood underneath in the front has some bubbling paint and some corrosion.Ford has had a huge problem with this on other models.I took mine to the dealer today and will know something tomorrow on what they will do as a fix.I've heard from a Ford bodyman that they will replace the hood with a steel hood.There is contamination under the paint on the aluminum. If you've had this problem ,I'd like to know how Ford handled it on your end. I know Ford changed to steel hoods on the 06 & 07's.........wonder why??????

My paintless dent guy told my that many manufacturers are using aluminum hoods, not just Ford or the Stang.

Hi i work at a ford dealer bodyshop i have taken in some cars with this consern not may 2 or three all of them have been by the bottom leading edge.No they wont replce the hood, i would not want the hood replced on mine,thearea where the oxidation is will get sanded down then the metal gets treated some primer and refinishing good as new if the shop is slow you should get your car back the same day if you leave it real early.I have seen this in the past with the expeditions after the repair they never come back so dont worry about it.07 and 08 hood still aluminum.

07gt........these hoods have been contaminated with steel somewhere in production as you know.Here's the problem as I see it, spot repairs are good for now,but,how about in a year or two when the warranty is gone? Ford will say tough luck.I've read several blogs on the net with people having repairs done with they're expeditions/explorers only to have more corrosion problems down the road.Ford has known about this problem now for a while and as you know has TSB's on this.Replacing the hood ,prepping it properly and painting is the real solution.Ford needs to get they're act together on this.What really pisses me off is I have a SHAKER installed on my hood with a center stripe.Now I'll have to deal with that.

Not noticed this on mine. I'll check next time I take it out.

What mileage / weather conditions are the cars with problems?

i had an 03 explorer that had the corrosion. it was like most people on the front of the hood.

i took it into the dealership and they fixed it no questions asked.

it was pretty much as good as new. i couldn't tell it had work done on it.

i don't know about the long-term reliability, though.

i took pics ofthe corrosionbut i think i deleted them since i tradedthe explorerin on my mustang.

i live in indiana so we see it all weather wise. the thing with my explorer though was that it was a garage queen that was always kept pristine and i only put 16k miles on it fortwo and half years i had it.

It may be caused by a defective glue !

A saw a thread about 6 months ago for similar issue inside door panels, it turn out to be from a bad batch of glue (which they now used to put these pannels together) that started to bublle with time. The thread that I saw mentionned about the dealer scraping the old glue and resealing the seams and re-paint.

But there was no rust...

Might be good to test before...

My hood has 2 small bubbles on the front corners where it meets the fender. I didn't even notice until I was doing a really meticulous wax job over the weekend...

I have these too, but it doesn't look like corrosion so much as bubbling seam sealer or whatever.

It hasn't gotten any worse, and since it's underneath, I'm not too worried about it, but a steel hood would be great since I have a few small dimples in my aluminum hood from some freaky hail storms this summer.

O.K.,here's what Ford is going to do on my GT.They are going to fix the affected area.I agreed,but also Itold the service manager that my concern is more bubbling occuring down the road.say after the warranty? He said paint issues are 5 years-50K . My car has 33K on it now,so I'm gonna try and get it extended even more.I will update as I know more. I really didn't want to change hoods because I have a Shaker..........more work!
