An excellent question. Most people seem to have no trouble getting the paint damage repaired under warranty -- but there's no point in just repainting the panel without also fixing the light. And there doesn't seem to be a universally-agreed upon method for that.

It would also likely be wise for Ford to fix the root cause at the plant. Even if it's one car in a thousand, that's 200 annoyed customers next year, and paying just one bodyshop to repaint a panel adds up to a lot of washers.
