We purchased a door latch to replace ours from Dodge. It came with instructions as follows:
Front Door Handle/Bezel Replacement for LH
1. Remove the front door trim panel using the procedures outlined in Section 23 of the appropriate service manual.
2. Place door trim panel on a clean work surface. Drill the mounting bosses' heat stakes, which attach the existing door handle/bezel to the panel, with a 21/64-drill bit. Take extra care to only drill in the center of each heat stake.
3. Remove existing handle/bezel from trim panel.
4. Clean the back of the trim panel of plastic fillings.
5. Seat the new handle/bezel into location.
6. Place the push nuts onto the handle/bezel bosses.
7. Use a 10 mm socket to install the push nuts all the way down on the mounting bosses to secure the handle/bezel onto the door trim panel. Using a wiggling side-to-side motion may be helpful.
8. Install the lock switch from the original handle/bezel to the new door handle/bezel.
9. Reinstall the door trim panel using the procedures outlined in Section 23 of the appropriate service manual.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Saturn SL1 Shifter to Shiftstick
I had the same problem over a year and a half ago. I went to the closest Saturn dealership to get the replacement plastic piece. Turned out that the ENTIRE shift cable assembly was the smallest part that could be purchased to repair this. The cable assembly was over $200 at that time. I opted to forgo the ridiculous expense for this tiny little plastic part. True story: with a little heavy safety wire and a large washer I jury rigged the washer to hold the end of the shift cable in the fitting at the bottom of the shift stick. The washer acts as a keeper and the wire, wrapped in a basket around the back side keeps everything together. It still shifts reliably, a little looser than when it was new, but I saved $200 in parts (99% of which weren't broken) and probably a couple of hours of labor at least. One end of the cable assembly has to be attached to the transmission by the way and is not easily accessible. Sounds hokey but it really worked, still works!
