Well I finally received my license plate after being pulled over three times, all warnings, and I applied and paid in January. Anyways I go out today to put my new plates on and I ran into an issue. First I thought it was a bolt that had stripped threads, no big deal. I ran downstairs to grab a pair of pliers and I thought an easy fix. After that failed I started to investigate a little further - it looks like whoever put them in originally over tightened them and whatever holds the bolt into place is loose - anybody know what this part is called or suggestions to remove / replace it? I am debating about trying to pop the plastic / cloth lining off from the inside of my trunk to see if i can get it done from in there but it looks like that is a pain in the ass task. I am clueless what to do now, I have to go on a pretty long drive in about two hours so any last minute help would be great...
