King Ranch wood problem

Just bought a used, 12,000 mile F350 King Ranch. Last ford diesel I bought was an 03 6.0 back in 03. Just now talked myself back into a ford. Been a long time since I was on here. Love the truck and motor so far. The problem I am having is one of the wood inserts on the door panels appears that the clear is failing. 3 are dark, smooth and shiny. 1 is lighter and very rough feeling. Just checking to see if anyone else has experienced this with theirs. Will post some pics. 2 are of the panel in question. Other is what the other 3 look like. Taken in the same light.

Looks like the bad one is the drivers' door. Probably had something spilled on it.

Yes it’s the driver door. That’s possible but the service guy at the dealer thinks it’s a defect as do I. He submitted photos but Ford denied warranty stating that it’s real wood and all wood is different. Still dealing with that. Just wondering if it has happened to anyone else.

I’m thinking the panel may have got wet entering while it’s raining.....or window down at drive through.
In an older truck I wouldn’t question it at all but in a year old truck with 12,000 miles and a sticker of $75,000 I do kind of expect more. The rest of the truck is like new. Doubt any cleaners will do much. The finish is very rough. Like it needs to be sanded down and re-finished.

Its used, so you dont know who/what caused this. What we can likely say is that its not a factory defect.

Good on ya for trying to get Ford to pay for it, but to level set here you didnt buy a 75k truck, you bought a used truck.

I would get a good detail shop to look at it.

Your right. Didn’t buy a 75k truck. Bought a 58k one that is a year old with 12k on it. Just figured the interior materials would hold up a little better on them. Im willing to bet it got wet. I believe the factory defect comes from it not being able to handle that in the short term. I’ve had numerous Laramie rams with wood and leather on the doors that have had no problems after getting in and out in a pouring rain that still look great at 100k. I believe the Ford panel was not cleared correctly allowing the moisture to do this in this short of time. Service tech at dealer agrees. Not trying to start a ram vs ford thread. I bought the truck because after 15yrs I was ready to give Ford another shot. This isn’t a thread to bash my new purchase either. Love the truck. Just checking to see if other KR owners have experienced this.
