2013 trunk lid rust

I noticed some minor paint bubbling on the bottom leading edge of the trunk lid right along the folded weld (I'll post pic tomorrow). Anyone else getting this problem?

This seems like a bad design or shotty paint work by ford... Guess I'll sand and paint if it gets any worse or mention to ford since I have the extended warranty.

That would be at the shop getting fixed!

Are your "weep" holes plugged? I found two holes, one on each side of the inside truck lip that were taped over from the factory with clear tape. I didn't see the holes until I saw round orange rust dots on the left and right. I took the tape off and the "small amount" of flaky rust fell out into the water tray and I cleaned it up.

I think it is to allow any water inside the truck lid to weep out into the water tray that lets rain water flow out of the truck lid area. If it doesn't weep out, it will collect and could be causing rust bubbles like that?

If it's a 2013 depending on your mileage take it into a dealer and warranty it. It should be covered in bumper to bumper, we get things like this all the time at work.

It is a 13, I'm at 48,000 miles but have the 100,000 mi warranty. I'll ask at next oil change... Where are these weep holes, on the trunk lid itself or between the windshield weather stripping and trunk tray/drain area? I'll post my results if any, thanks guys!

Best way to find them is open the lid full up and look at both the left and right side of the lid at the corner closest to the body of the car. You might find the clear tape "disk" may have some of the paint color on it. The tape disk is a tiny bit larger than size of a dime. The hole it covers is about the size of a #2 pencil.

I asked my dealer service manager if the tape should have been removed and he said yes, but who knows, I don't think he had ever even seen them before. All I know is mine had rust powder built up inside that came out when the tape disk was removed.

If you look at the lid and follow a runner up from one of these two holes, you can see an inside the lid ridge that looks like it is an internal water duct "could" direct water from inside the lid to either one of these holes.

My car is garaged in winter and I just looked at it again at it to make sure I could tell you the right spot and i noticed a "dirt line" on the same area as yours that seems to be created by the rubber seal the truck lid closes on. The dirt line looks rusty brown, not black. I rubbed with a wet finger and it seems I could remove a little some of it, so I will see in the morning if I can remove it with a cleaner. If not, this seems like an area that needs attention like using a silicone spray on the rubber seal quite often.

Yeah if it's under warranty, they will completely sand down and replace it. Free of any charge to you.
