Just ordered new parts to repair this all. I found that handle PN is 62150AA211 and the rusted plate bracket is 84927AC020. several websites can offer these parts, or just call your local Subaru dealer and give them the numbers above. I will hopefully post pictures of the parts or repair. Should not be hard to replace.
Once the parts are rusty, its too late. If the handle sticks in the up position, its getting time to replace while you can still open up the back hatch. That's where I am now. The handle sticks in the up position and need to push it down and toward the door in order for it to work properly. Keep you all posted.
