Rear license plate screws and threads
 
Does anyone know the part # for the part that is attached to the lift gate that has the threads for the license plate screws. They are the little black plastic things. Got the license plate and went to screw it in only to find the dealer overtightened the temp tag and cracked the plastic pieces in half and the screws won't stay in. Oh well right. Hahah

Definitely, return that problem to the dealer... They caused it!

They probably used a cordless drill that was over-torqued to drive them in so far as to crack the plastic!

Good Luck with this!

Problem is that bought the vehicle in michigan and live in florida. haha. I already removed the rear trim panel because every time I have ever taken any vehicle into the dealer the trim panels come back all scratched and marred up from screwdrivers or whatever they use. No element of care is taken. I guess I will go to the local dealer and get them there. What a pain?

Well went to two dealerships today to get the parts. One said oh yeah that is not a serviceable item and we don't have them. I said what happens when you guys break them yourselves............. (pause) no answer. Went to another one down the road and the guy handed them to me and said don't worry about it. I said thank you and went home satisfied. Wonder where I am going to get my vehicle serviced from now on.
