Default Rusting tailgate around chrome piece

Can anyone confirm there is a new/replacement chrome piece with "padding" around it to keep it from rubbing the paint. It is my understanding this is the cause. Anyone have pictures, part number, anywhere on internet to find this part? Or do they just modify the exisitng one?? Thanks in advance

PS I am talking about the piece between the window and the license plate.

This is a known design flaw, there is no Saturn part to fix the problem, or a replacement handle. The proper fix is to use a fabricated gasket or 3M tape that isolates this chrome handle part from painted metal.

If your vehicle is less than 3 years & under 36K, Saturn may compensate this repair at the dealerships discresion. Good luck.
