Cant Remove The Number Plate Screws


Recommended Posts

I had the same problem 6 months ago when I went to put my new plates on, I had to gauge out the old screws using a lot of bute force hammer and screwdriver and, I just used sticky pads to put on the new plates and that covered any holes left by the previous screws it looks a lot nicer without the screws showing anyway

If it's the back no.plate .... take off the carpet liner on the boot lid and use a vice grip on the screws from the inside :)

Not sure why people screw them on anyway.

Yes I agree, Hate having screws in plates, makes them look a mess, esp when they rust

The first thing I so when I get a new car is get a new set of clean plates and stick them on with pads

I had the same problem when I first fitted my plates. Used a reverse drill bit to get it out. Put the drill in reverse and the drill bit unscrews it :winky: . Then covered the holes with some masking tape for insulation and stuck my new ones on.
