No idea how to fix but mine is doing that on the front one. Mine lookes to have a chip from a rock that has has air slowly expanding the hole.... I've been thinking about removing my emblem and taking all the clear part off and re painting it with better paint.

If you have a factory warranty I believe some have gotten new ones.

That style of oval is notorious for the clear peeling & making it look like that.
There's really nothing you can do to fix it easily... you could strip all the clear off, sand everything, carefully mask & paint, but that's a LOT of work & it would be less trouble to buy another oval.

Depending on the size 4 1/2", 4 3/4", 5 3/4", 7" or 9"... I can mod the "older" style ovals that I have to make the Ford script almost any color & the background almost any color. Check out my custom ford ovals thread.

I also have a couple of that "newer" style of oval in the garage. Let me know what size you need & I'll see if I have one.

Like STL mentioned, if your truck is still under warranty, it should be covered.
