Ok i just clayed the whole front of the car, got to the drivers side and freaked out.
There is a spot right above the drivers side door that chipped off it is down to the metal, i thought it was sap. luckily enough there is another tiny spot just above it that is bubbling so i can prove it was a defect not me.
So the question...
When i take it to ford what should i expect/ ask them to do?

the chip was never there before i thought it was a sap spot and tried to wipe it down.. and the paint went with it. but the spot just above has blistered a bit but you can see its just about to completly chip off.
Thats the thing tho, its on the body not the door, i dont want touch up paint cause itll chip off again while the body is rusting away.
the strip between the roof and where the door hits (glass)
You use high pressure to wash at the car wash?
This most likely caused the paint that was bubblin
to release and fly away leaving the "paint chip".
Water is probably under there and it will only
get worse and touch-up paint will not cure the
problem. Stealership warranty time. Hope they
can make a seamless repair and get the paint
matched 100%. I have heard of the aluminum
hood bubblin but not the steel above the door.[:@]
Be nice at first and see what that gets you.
Treat the dealership like your friend.
Explore all options before getting nasty with
the service manager, if you have to.
