2007 Outlook XR
Default Smashed my Tailgate

Arghhh!!! I smashed my Tailgate this weekend. I backed up in a garage with it open nad the top hit a pillar and smashed the chrome plate above the license plate and scratched the gate. Luckily no dents or structural problems and the gate is fully operational.

That being said, does anyone have or know where I can get the part# for the chrome piece with the Saturn insignia above the license plate I just need that top piece and it houses the lighting for the license plate. All the lights are okay so hopefully I can just replace that plate.

I would like to order online and and install myself. Any ideas or places to go?

OUCHHHHHHH! that hurts, glad that you did'nt dent it. I had to have mine replaced by the dealership because the insignia was tarnished from the inside, the dealer ordered it and it was there the next day for them to put on. I would say try saturnparts.com or just order it through a good body shop. How's your sunroof been leakwise? Good luck

Attention Re: Smashed my Tailgate

Try;
FP number: 15923642
Description:applique 172150
(albeit info off Canadian dealership workorder)

I had it replaced on the 3rdNov. as the underside was already oxidizing like it would be after 4-5 yrs of neglect vs only on the lot of a dealership for a yr plus the insignia was cracked soooo warranty r/r .

that said they may have actually just used a lot of elbow grease to clean the plastic'chrome' and replaced the Saturn insignia/herald

good luck,
doug c
