Paint bubbling on hood...

Washing the car yesterday I find a spot on the front lip of the hood that is bubbling. Then I find a smaller second spot on the other side. I remember reading about this on AFM so when I'm done I do a search.

Man was I excited to see so many posts about this problem. But not just for our generation of Mustangs, but going back to 2006?

Seriously Ford? The same problem since 2006

Luckily I'm still within my 3/36 warranty so I'll take her in to get some paint work done. Not really thrilled about it, but what can you do.

So now I'll start saving my pennies for a new hood since it seems most report the problem coming back within a year.

That sucks, hopefully the dealership will take care of the problem.


13 GT base, 3.55, Sterling Grey, MGW shifter, BMR LCA's, GT500 AB, silver RTR's, 275/40/19 Michelin pilot super sports, more stereo equipment than I will admit to, more parts to come.

If they want me to purchase another car from them in the future they will.

Same problem with my 2007 GT and Ford gave me a new hood after their repair didn't work.

I have the bubbling but so far it's under the hood. I expect a lot of owners have the issue but don't realize it due to the fact it starts bubbling around the seams under the hood.

Please bring them in to your Ford dealers and have them diagnose it, RedWings. Then, PM me with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, best daytime number, and the concern your vehicle is having so I can forward it to the customer service manager for your area.

You were excited to see so many posts?

Beautiful, warm, and sunny here today, so I just washed mine. As I am OCD I wipe down and dry the underside of the hood, anything in the engine bay I can get to easily, inside/under the doors jams, trunk, fuel door, etc, every time I wash, even if it's a quicky spray job.

So far no issues here.

+3 on pictures though, good info to know and keep an eye out for.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

I did the same with mine and it appeared quickly...

It's got nothing to do with how you clean it it has to to with aluminum corrosion from how the metal was prepared prior to painting... some of the hoods were contaminated with iron particals somehow, which expedited the corrosion....

So glad you are OCD keep watching it...
