Black back panel clear coat flaking 2014

The panel between tail lights. Anyone else seeing this? Pretty early for this to begin. In the right light, easy to see. Not horrendous looking yet, but it won't get better by itself. Does the panel come off easily for replacement or respray necessary? Don't have any pictures currently.

Mine is starting to look pretty bad as well. Mostly garage kept though, I'd guess the daylight sun helped quite a bit to escalate the peel/bubble. Nonetheless, it seems to be yet another quality issue. What a shame.

I believe the part(number) has been revised for the same reason. Someone at the dealership told me possibly a factory defect and that the warranty should cover it.

Unfortunately, my bumper to bumper is long gone now and I'm not paying over three-five hundred dollars for an oem trunk panel. Sad days for Stangers.

Very common issue. Here is a how-to and site that offers replacement options other than oem.

Seems to occur more in hot climes. Mine's alright still but, it's covered parking both ends and mild temps, mostly.

If you like the stocker, pull and respray it is with durable paint. I'd get a body shop in on this, as painting plastic isn't easy.

Isn't it black plastic? Can you post pics of chipping?

Mine will be coming off soon anyway to be replaced with a smooth one (no fake gas cap).

My 13 Shelby never did it because it was always in climate controlled garage

My daughters 13 V6 did it pretty bad because it was always outside
