Owners are expected to wash and wax their vehicles, including chrome parts, to remove harmful deposits from the vehicle’s surfaces to help protect the finishes.


Exterior Chrome Cleaning Procedure:

Refer to the vehicle Owner’s Guide for cleaning recommendations.



Corrosion due to lack of maintenance or from impact is not covered under warranty. The backside of the bumper is lightly chrome plated. It also has a protective coating that reduces, but does not eliminate environmental exposure. Corrosion on the backside of the  bumper  is not warrantable.


Aftermarket Remanufactured/ Re-chromed Bumper

To help identify re-chromed bumpers: the backside of Ford bumpers are only lightly chrome plated; also, the Ford logo is usually partiall removed during the re-chroming pro edure.
