Are any of your Expedition badges falling off?

You would think with the amount of money we spent on the vehicle it would be a given that the emblems would stay on longer than a year.

On my 07, the passenger side Expedition emblem is starting to peel off.. just wondering if the quality control is consistant with everyone else vehicles.

The emblem on my front grill has water/bubbles underneath the plastic film and I dont think its a protective film either. Looks like rocks pitted the emblem and created a small hole for water to enter.

I had my driver's door emblem replaced about a year ago only a few months into owning my truck. The passenger side is starting to peel off now too.. I agree though, pretty sad to have the emblems falling off of something so expensive..

I too have an emblem starting to peel off. Mine is the one on the tailgate. I will be visiting my local Ford dealer soon.

I assume they used a substandard double sided tape. 3M makes the best tape for this. It's not hard to remedy yourself.

Yep, drivers door emblem started coming off, dealer replaced the whole thing. I just noticed the other day it appears the Ford emplem in the grill is "delaminating" (if that makes sence) - mine has NO places where gravel has hit it.

Just had the front badge replaced on my '07. Looked like air bubbles under the surface.

My '05 F350 is doing the same thing.
