I have a 2004 ESV and have loads of rust on this one brace. Their is no other rust anywhere on my escalade. Has this part been recalled?
So you think it's #13? They don't look the same.http://www.gm-partscenter.com/parts...up=FENDER & COMPONENTS&component=Fender brace
Here you go luckily its cheap enough
+1 POR-15 and it will never rust again!a quick touch of something like POR15 on the new one might help prevent this, wouldn't hurt to try it.
They all are based on the truck frames I know my uncle told me(he worked at gm)tigers2007 said:ESV? Isn't that based on the regular chassis trucks? Check and see if that is a common part between all of the GM half-ton trucks. Obviously it was not treated correctly from the part supplier who used a cheap grade coating/paint.
Nah. #12 is the piece under it. I'm not even sure it's shown in that photo.#12 is the correct one a quick touch of something like POR15 on the new one might help prevent this, wouldn't hurt to try it.

Here is the part that I replaced with a $15 one from the junk yard. I guess GM received some bad parts from the supplier?
