My dealer replaced the entire tail light assembly ... I picked up my car after the techs left (this was last fall) ... there is still rubbing. It appears that the ONLY way to prevent the issue is to add washers or some other piece to the assembly to give it clearance. My build was 12/19/11, sad to hear it's still an issue a year later
