    I’m sure this has been discussed before but would like to look at a video on installing the front license plate bracket, I want to do the factory installed bracket and do not mind drilling holes.

    Ok, no answers is there a way to use the factory bracket and use adhesive instead of screws. I want it exactly where the original bracket is installed.

    One thing to consider is that the license plate bracket is held by bottom part only with 3 screws. If you use adhesive I am not sure if it’s strong enough without support for the top half of the bracket.
