Question type: Maintenance & Repair

License Plate mount screws: I attempted to clear the nuts for new screws. Not successful. Does the panel around license plate come off to access behind so new nuts can be installed?

Yes it does, remove the top screws and slide the surround downward off the plate revealing the lower screws if applicable.


Thank you Tom. I just finished drilling the broken plastic screws that hold the plate and cover to panel. I dressed the threads and voila, installed the plate and cover with new screws to vehicle. I originally thought I had to replace nuts inside the panel, hence the Question?
