Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

I bought my Summit in MD and live in PA(PA does not have front plates). I didn't even think about this until I got it home. MY bumper was drilled into. No Bracket... I was pissed!

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

I escalated to Chrysler who called the dealership. The dealer called me back and said to come in and they will give me one even if they have to pull one off another vehicle. I sent my salesman a picture of it to ensure they get me the correct one before I drive down there. I will keep you posted once I have it in my hand.

Yes, but was your front bumper delivered with holes drilled in it from the dealership?
That's what I dislike.

Ever since the industry moved to the plasticized bumpers this has been the method. After your post I even checked my wife's Mercedes C Class and it is the same.
This is exactly how mine came. Two small "dimples" where holes should be drilled. There is also an uninstalled bracket in the trunk.

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

Well I guess it's to late for this method, since they already drilled your front bumper, But a friend of mine did this on his Lexus and it's awesome.

Buy about 12 rare earth magnets (3/4" - 1")
Epoxy 6 of them to the inside of your bumper
Epoxy the other 6 onto the back side of your license plate
Get a good quality microfiber cloth
Spray glue the microfiber cloth and the backside of your license plate (right over the magnets)
Stick the microfiber cloth to the licence plate
Trim the cloths around the edge of the license plate

Done.

Have a plate when you need it, No plate when taking pictures, No drilling!

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

I was shocked today to learn my dealer drilled holes into my bumper to screw in their cheap tin license plate advertisement! I was in so disbelief that I assume it had to be some sort of stupidity on their part until I found this thread.

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

Mine came with a bracket from the dealer, and thankfully they didn't install it. It's sitting in my garage. On my bumper the factory molded in two indentations that mark where the holes should be drilled. So it seems the bracket is intended to be screwed right into the bumper.
