    So, i dont know if the rest of you have had a similar problem but the sticker with the AC info and, i think, the serpentine belt routing is gone on my car. Just peeled right away. I didnt know what was on it until i went to get the AC serviced and the guy pointed out it was missing.

    Does anyone know of someplace that might sell that sticker or does anyome have a picture of theirs so i can at least print it up and throw it in the glove box for future reference?

    I tried googling pictures and while there are PLENTY of engine compartment pictures, none focused on the sticker so i could zoom in on it lol

    The sticker/decal should be available through your local Ford parts dept. What year is your car?

    2008. I tried searching for the part number using Tousley White Bear Ford but i couldnt find anything in the breakdowns. That said im not a ford service rep that uses those diagrams daily so they ,ight very well know where to look specifically for that.

    I'm sorry, I see you mentioned '08. Here is a picture of my 2008 sticker, no serp. routing, but plenty A/C info., that is why your A/C guy noticed it was gone......

    Click on my picture and the Ford part number is in the lower right corner, that is what they will order this sticker by.......if it is still available?

    The reason why these stickers hump up in the middle is because this plastic shield sits directly above the hot radiator, the plastic shield expands and so does the decal, the plastic shield contracts when it cools, the decal is stretched from the expansion, but does not contract, it is permanently stretched and releases in this area of the decal. If you get a new decal you will also notice that this area is where the two pieces of backing over lap before they are peeled off for decal application. Over time moisture (rain, etc.) makes its way under the sticker and helps to release the rest adhesive..............along with the help of the heat and stretching over and over.....

    If you bring that part number to the Ford parts dept., it will go a long way toward ordering the correct decal, if it is still available?

    Another time when these decals get damaged........When an owner is not careful when changing coolant, or coolant tanks. When you get a little bit of antifreeze under this decal, it will cause it to release even quicker. Of course no one thinks about that.

    I thought you needed belt routing - no idea you were looking for the actual sticker.

    Oh. I needed routing too! I thought it was on that sticker like it used to be on older cars. Got two serpentine belts coming soon for replacement.
