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.

Most chrome trim is a plastic chrome finish with a lacquer top coat, not metal that has bee chromed, it should be replaced.

buffing plastic will likely just remove the top chrome seems pretty simple that they should replace it

It looks like the plastic top coat has failed.

ye

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.
