Default How to Remove License Plate Finisher

Open the trunk and remove the trunk lid finisher by removing all the clips. Use a Philip's head to to rotate and raise the center of the clip then pull them out.

Click the image to open in full size.

Once that is done, there are two nuts and five clips to remove. The nuts are easily accessible inside the trunk lid. The clips are another story. Pain in the butt to get them to release. I used a metal pick to push the retaining tabs in on each clip. The two located at the bottom of the license plate area will be the hardest to remove without breaking them. Me, i broke them and did not replace them. Four years, no problems without them.

Nuts are circled in green. Clips are circled in red.

Or just RTV the shit out of it and call it a day.

I once went crazy with some RTV on my last car(99 neon). Damn aftermarket tail lights didn't seal good with the trunk and water leaked in. The drivers side tail light would also fill with water. I thought about putting a couple plastic fish down in there and turn it into a fish bowl since the tail lights were clear and everyone noticed it. RTV all the way around them and painted it black with a rattle can. Couldn't tell it was there even if the trunk was open exposing the RTV entirely.

But i did not have any on the shelf in my garage. Had a big tube of the clear RTV and a caulking gun right next to it. Then black spray paint on the shelf below that. LOL
