Does anyone have any tips on what to do with the silver auto shift surround that tends to bubble up on a ba auto? Does anyone know why it does it?

I just want to know if anyone has any ideas on how to fix it or do you just buy a new one from ford? Does anyone know what they are worth?

They cost $39.00 new from Ford. The one you want is part number BA F044F06B5.

Has anyone tried rubbing them back and painting them?

I haven't seen a BF one do it, but have seen the silver door handle accents on BF's do it.

my bf has 99k on it and lives outside and hasn't done it, my mates ba has unsure of k's. they do it because they are inferior lol

the silver door handles on mine were ok when removed at 90k

i would say that people neglecting their interiors are to blame. i use an aerospace 'plastic sunscreen' on mine and everything still looks like it did the day it rolled out of the factory and it's never been garaged.

well i dont think it has anything to do with neglect as ive used some of the best interior protectant money can buy, car has always been garaged and it only has 38,000km on the clock and has started to bubble. seems to be a factory defect.

i think i might look at getting a BF one and see how that goes.

Yep, my BA has been garaged for almost 4 years and it started bubbling a little earlier this year. Oddly enough it just bubbled around the 'D' marker. Weird.

I thought they bubble up because of the heat coming from the globe underneath. Especially around the 'D'. some guys have fixed this by replacing the globe with an LED light.
Luckily so far i have not had this problem on my BA and now has 98K on it but i suppose my good luck will finally end.
Something to ponder about.

Exactly... and i think the rectified this in the BA by fitting them standard with LED. Mine is f**k too, but i CBF changing it, because i aint going to change the globes and it will just happen again.

Well since it's about the same amount of work to change the bulbs as it is the shifter thingy anyway, do both at the same time.
