Removing front license place with tamper proof screws
Hopefully right forum, but I just moved back to Texas and got my plates and tried removing my old plates from the front bumper. They are mounted with tamper proof screws, no problem I have the tools for that. Problem is: I can't access the back nut (or whatever is holding it in place) to unscrew it properly.
I tried taking off the front bumper, but lack the physical arm strength and power tools to do so
I was wondering if anyone had an easy "aha, I feel dumb now" solution for removing it? (No, I didn't install the plates)
If anything I was thinking I could just get a dremel and saw them off...
I work at a car dealer. We get in car loads of (legal?) imigrants from south of the border quite frequently. They always want to test drive something. While they are gone is is common practice for the saleman to go out and do a walk around of any potetial trade to have a little info for them when they return. I would say that at least 80% of the time there will be a stack of no less that 10 to 15 plates in the back seat from various states around the country.
My plates (both front and rear) have been stolen about 6 times, It's a hazard of having custom California plates in New England. Unfortunately, someone managed to steal my last one that had just expired before I could replace it with my NH plates so now I don't even have a CA plate of my own any more.
It shouldn't, just focus on the bolt that you need off. If you are worried about the bumper, you could stick a rag inbetween the bumper and chisel and all should be good. We don't have the stickers on our plates down here. Maybe thats why they don't steal them. hmmm... why don't they get it off my windshield then? haha
