I have a 2006 Rio 5 hatchback. I wanted to swap the license plate from the front to the back because the one in the back where the registration sticker goes on is worn out too much. The front one is in good shape. When I tried to unscrew the screws holding the rear license plate, they just turn without coming loose. Looks like the threads on the car body is stripped. Is there a plastic insert in the holes (like the ones used on dry walls to hang pictures etc.)?
How easy is to remove the plastic panel on the inside of the trunk lid, under the rear windshield to see whether the inserts (if they come with it) can be popped out to put in a replacement?
Or, can someone suggest a better solution? I already paid for this years registration stickers and don't want to spend again for a new license plate, new stickers and mechanics cost to install the new plates.
Thanks
