It's hard to tell what I'm looking at. Can you take a wider shot to establish what corner.

I had flaking at my taillight and ford repainted by quarter panel under warranty, but it was flaking off really easily, worse that what the picture you provided seems to show... Of course as soon as they fixed it I was rear ended and it got repainted again...

To the OP, how many miles are on the car? I was covered as 2nd owner, 19k miles and 20 months. I was told there is a "tape test" for flaking. The service advisor showed me the pictures he had to take to have ford cover it. He had to put blue painters tape on and let it sit for 5 minutes, if he pulled it off and paint came off with it too then they would cover it...

I'd see what your dealer will do... Can't hurt.
