Full Version: 2012 Focus Titanium Chrome Dis Colored
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford Focus Club
the chrome strip on the front passengers door is dis coloured ( white like calcium on a kettle) I have taken the car to the dealer and they have told me that they will buff it first ??????????? has any one found the same issue.
I would be surprized if buffing it removes it , they should replace it.
that's exactly what i suspected to the dealer, but the service guy replied that ford would ask for it to be buffed first before Ford would support a warranty claim.
[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]Most chrome trim is a plastic chrome finish with a lacquer top coat, not metal that has bee chromed, it should be replaced.[/font][/size][/color]
buffing plastic will likely just remove the top chrome seems pretty simple that they should replace it

here is how it should be see the reflection in the chrome
[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]It looks like the plastic top coat has failed.[/font][/size][/color]
i believe the strip has a fault in it. the service guy at the dealer suggested that it was sun cream mistakenly applied by kids, i did not quite laugh at him but replied that the kids must have been real good as that strip has the same apperance at its full lengnth only on the front passenger section of the strip and the same kids would have to applied the sun cream under the mirror not leave any finger marks on it or anywhere else on the car ...... where do they find these people
Sun! cream would strip plastic but I suggest a fault with the lacquer on the strip.
They'll not be able to polish it, it needs replacing.
