Unfortunately it does not work that way. You have to take the vehicle to a Ford Service Center. They have to see the problem in person, then they take a slew of pics to submit to Ford Corp. The pics are reviewed and then the Warranty Claim is either authorized or denied. With the TSB existing, and if the damage is as described in the TSB, then the claim will be authorized.Can I call them have them order me a new hood under this TSB, then let them prep and paint it and I pick it up and install it myself? because I don't trust the dealership and their pinhead lot boys not to thrash my 750 wWHP Beast.
After it’s authorized they’ll notify you and you have to bring the car back in for the repair. They (Ford Service Center) has to do the R&R in order for the Warranty to be completed AND so that hood is now covered under the repair policies.
