Should have been rubber blocks with a hole in the middle to screw your plate to. It's one thing drilling into the plastic bumper but drilling into metal is not on. Seriously, go to the dealer now. Don't leave it until it starts to rust.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

If they can't fit rego plates last thing I would want is them replacing the tailgate

Cheers

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Yep......as others have said, there should have been 2 black square grommets in those holes with round holes to screw into. Why they did that I'll never know!!!

I'd be straight back to them ASAP and demanding a repair. There isn't any evidence of rust proofing the holes or anything!!!!!

I'd be extremely pissed off...............

That's really really lazy. I think my car would have been on the same boat. Is it my 2013. Can you confirm.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Update:

I emailed the dealer with the attached photo last night expressing my diappointment with the holes.
He called me this morning to apologise and thank me for raising it as they were not aware this was occuring. He said to take it to a repairer/panel shop of my choice and send them the bill.

So whilst it is annoying I think the dealer handled it the best way possible straight up.

Northern Rivers Jeep (Lismore NSW). They have been good along the way and have been quick off the mark if I have any concern. This issue and quick resolution reaffirms their integrity.
