2010 Chevy Traverse: Trouble With Trim

October 13, 2010

That....probably shouldn't do that.

What you're seeing here is the passenger side rear door halfway opened on our long term 2010 Chevy Traverse. That chrome thing gouging up the paint? Not supposed to do that.

This chrome trim piece is de-gluing itself at both ends and while the trailing edge (not pictured) isn't really hurting anything flopping about in the breeze, the leading edge catches on the front door and does nasty things to the paint.

But don't worry, I fixed it.


Okay, so a 2 x 6" section of gaff tape isn't a fix per se, but it will hold the thing attached until we can get it to the local dealership (tomorrow) and have it replaced.

We'll see what they do about the paint damage while we're there.
