Ford Badge Replacement Scheme

32
Found 6th Nov 2014
I'm not sure if this has been posted before but in any event I thought it was worth posting as the deadline is soon approaching (ends 31 December 2014).

Ford is currently replacing the oval logo badges in the front and rear of vehicles up to a maximum of 10 years old. If your badge is worn or tattered, you can phone them and book a replacement free of charge (with no purchase necessary). This may be handy if you want to spruce up your vehicle or if you plan to sell it soon and want to increase the value a little.

Note: The link I’ve attached is for Essex but I've been assured its valid for any UK ford dealer as the scheme is nationwide.

You can ring them and ask. Mine was a 'like for like' replacement. (didn't know they had different colours)

Yeah, this has been posted before, but good to remind people. I found out about this offer when I took Boris in for a service and he came back with new badges front and rear, and he's got the 'swingy' one on the bonnet.

I had my front a rear badges replaced earlier this year at trust ford Barnsley on my focus, was happy until I went to top my screen wash up later that day and found I couldn't open the bonnet, the garage had snapped a little plastic part in the lock. then said they hadn't touched it

And said I'd have to pay to have it fixed, any way after a lot of arguments they agreed to fix it FOC, definately wouldn't recommend that certain dealership

No chance of replacing the badges on a 14 year old ST then..... lol.

How on earth do you have a 14 year old st?!

It'll be a mark one St. The old old style focus lol. And as for the coloured badges. There just badge overlays you can get them in any colour. I have orange and black as I have an orange St

I have. 56 plate focus and front badge is missing. Reckon they'll charge me for replacing it?

Damn, have a focus and a fiesta, both need badges and thats my local too.
Did they do as you wait?
My only concern is car going in for badge, being left and then some mesterious fault happening or something dodgy so i need more work doing!?

They weren't going to fix it straight away, I kicked up a fuss in there showroom still took them about 4 hours, I would avoid trust ford Barnsley

Just had a proper look at your post, the actual replacement only took about half an hour so I waited in the showroom

They will replace on any car no matter where purchased, there is a link with a internal memo I printed off when I took mine, I'll see if I can find it

Went to Hendy Ford (Southampton) dealer and they said that the replacement badge for my Ford KA would be £15+ (inspite of specifying that Ford is actually running the badge replacement for 2014)

I will now go again next week with the above print out to show them. Will see what they say.

Seems like they were more interested in me purchasing from them rather than providing a decent service and knowing what is being offered by their mainstream manufacturer!

I had mine done about 10 days ago.

It took an hour and a half! Although this was quoted on the phone.

They replaced the badge, they also did a full visual check of the car and provided a report. They also gave the car a full wash and vacuum. All free of charge

That was Bristol Street Stoke.

You don't want much!

Thanks. My focus badge at the rear is tarnished. Car is only 3 year old this January.

really? I had an Escort years ago & replaced the badges with red ones, took about 5 minutes!

car booked into Colchester Lookers ford, no issues with getting t free but the free health check will no doubt try and find something wrong...

Yep.

I'm sure the badge didn't take long, they are glued on so I guess it would have been warmed up and gently removed, cleaned up then then new one applied.

Then up on the ramps for a visual health check.

Then finally went in the queue for the washing bay for it's wash and vacuum.

They quoted an hour and a half on the phone but said normally it would be a bit less. However on the day it took the full hour and a half!

They didn't find anything wrong with mine - hopefully because there wasn't anything wrong but they didn't try to make anything up.

I've only had the car 2 - 3 weeks so touch wood they wont find anything wrong! hopefully they will be quicker than an hour and a half too..

I need to sort this on my 13 plate Ka, the rear one has a lovely white streak running from the top right to the center.
Have noticed a lot of tatty ford badges on a number of cars, it seems Ford and Fiat both have poor quality badges (probably the same supplier at a guess). Would think it would be cheaper to just up the quality then to keep replacing them all going forward.

What if both my badges look ok (blue very slightly faded), will they still replace them?

my tdci badge needs replacing

I doubt it, they went outside to check mine before accepting it.

Ford is replacing one part that doesn't last for ten years. What about all the other parts?

Thanks OP (after seeing the other Ford badge post I went to replace my Ford's rear badge. The paint had flaked off).

Went in three times to Hendy's Ford West Quay! The first time they declined saying that they did not know anything about it. The second time I went with a print out from the net which was a letter from Ford to one of the dealer, which gave the code etc. And this is when I booked for an appointment to come the next time to change the badge.
At the third visit they changed the badge. But as others have suggested the Hendy's wesy quay did not give my car a wash! Treating the existing customers shows Ford's service levels!!!

I also own a Honda and they have been very good. Ford comes no where near!

I will try and aviod Ford in future.
