I went to the dealer to have them fix this and they told me it was only covered if my car was under 36,000 miles. I mentioned the TSB and my 5 year corrosion warranty, and they told me they had to be able to stick a poker through the hood. True or false, because if it's false they are getting my car back, and I won't take no for an answer.
try a different dealer... doesn't sound right to me.

On the bottom of the TSB it says "Warranty Status, information only" Whats that mean?

Was wondering that too. How many of you have had this problem with your 05-08 stangs and what have you done?

I think it means it will be covered under warranty. If your's has expired, it may be too late.

This happened to me and they would do nothing. I went to 3 dealerships and nothing... No more warranty so now i'm stuck paying for it myself.

You would think they would warranty their paint for more than that, but it is no different to them paint or water pump. Once it's gone, it's gone.

I have it on mine, on the front lip of the center part of the Hood....

I'll try to take a Photo of it later, but everyone pretty much knows what it looks like.

Is it on the outside or under the lip ?

The warranty booklet says 5 year warranty on corrosion - no mileage limit. The dealership should fix it. Print out the TSB and take it. That's what I plan to do.Mine is also under the front center lip of the hood (Satin Silver) - about 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch.

Anyone had successful repair from Ford? How long did it take? Thanks.
