Default What can I do to fix this?

My ford emblem on the front grill has discolored itself. I was wondering if this happens to anyone else. Mine is a 2006. I wanted to replace this. Does the whole grill need to be replaced too or can I remove the emblem by itself because I want to replace this emblem for a new one. Also how much does one emblem for an 06' ranger cost?

Emblem should come off the grille. Best to remove the grille then remove the emblem to make it easier. Buy a new one, or some have repainted theirs another color.

Pretty common on the 06+ revised emblems. I too have heard some being warrantyed. If not, it's like a $30 fix for a new emblem from the dealer.

06+'s are not gel emblems....they are 1 piece molded 'bubble' emblems. 04-05 Fiddy's have big ass gel emblems though. lol.

Yeah...I think the '06 Ranger and '06 Fiddy were the last ones to get the 'bubble' new-age emblems. Not counting the P71 fleet vic.

I don't think the old one is under warranty anymore now. My '06 is.
