Man, really love everything "important" about my 2013 SE, but jeez, all the trim pieces are crap.


Notice the lift handle was separating on right side.  Fixed with some gorilla tape.   and now about 3/4s of it popped off.  Looks like the whole assembly is attached to four clips with thin strips of paperthin plastic.


Looks like the part is about $100, but I don't know if that include the adhesive to attach to life gate (or how to remove the old adhesive without destroying finish.


Anybody have a way of jury rig this (preferably without a roll of gorilla tape)

You might want to look for service bulletins on this.  I had this same problem with my Scion xB and Toyota eventually offered repair or reimbursement of the cost.
