Since it was not considered a manufacturer's defect they will have to pay to replace the panel themself.
Correct. The dealer claimed that there was no defect and that I must have driven over something. which caused the panel to split and come loose. That's there contention, but I know that I didn't drive over anything. There is no damage anywhere under the car, such as a tell tale sign of where something impacted my car. Anyway, it's a moot point because Ford won't cover it under warranty so I'm eating the cost.

So frustrating.
