Id say the logical thing to do would be to buff it out, perhaps add some kind of wax and stay the heck out from under that tree.

I think that's probably the solution, but it's still disconcerting that I'm just a few birds-on-a-bender away from having a stained fender again. How many times can I buff it out before I run out of paint?

Buffing depends on how thick the clearcoat is. It would take a while to get through it with regular polish, but aggressive stuff or wet sanding not as long. I can't imagine them not being cleared as the gloss wouldn't match and the paint wouldn't stand a chance. Clean them up good and try a product called Rejex. It's good stuff.

What did you use to paint them? Any body filler to make the plastic smooth? Just curious

Ask Chrysler (or maybe Fiat). These are the factory white fenders. If it was my own paintjob, I would just re-do it and try something different. With this being the factory paint on the white fenders, I am more inclined to have them fix it.

The paint on the fenders has to be a little different mix than the body because it will have a flex agent added to it to keep the paint from cracking and flaking off the plastic. That's usually just in the base coat, though. I suppose it could be single stage unlike the body. Perhaps it's the flex agent that's being stained.

That's what I'm thinking. I'm taking it back to the dealership and see what they say.

Thanks. That looks very helpful.

In a previous career I had some expereince with 3M paint protection film. My other thought, if the dealership route doesn't give me any satisfaction, was to put that on top of the fenders. But the fenders are curved and my application skills are rusty (if I had any in the first place), so a good wax solution would be best.

RLJ, I know i'm a little late to the post, but I just went through this on my new 2014 Sahara Unlimited. I took it to its first car wash and the tire shine stained the white painted fenders (mostly the rear) and nothing I or the car was did would remove it. When I read the warranty info from Jeep, it seemed like they would too many outs to even make the fight. I ended up getting both rear fenders painted today (with the car wash paying some of the bill. I'd like to hear if you heard from the Dealer of Jeep on this issue, because I don't think it's going away.

I had the same problem on my 2014 Tacoma and the only thing that would get rid of the stains was the sun.
After about 2 weeks all staind gone.

I used this in my detailing days to get off berry stains from bird poo on light colored cars, also windshield washer fluid and rust stains.


Vinegar might help, so might baking soda, obviously not at the same time. Make a paste out of the baking soda with water.

I think naval jelly may work on the OPs stains, if he still even has it a year later.
