BMW 740i License Plate Bracket
Various Problems You May Encounter in a BMW 740i License Plate Bracket
Have you ever been pulled over by traffic police because one or both of your license plates is missing? In most US states, the law requires you to post a license plate at the front and rear bumpers of your vehicle. This is for proper identification and easier tracking. However, you cannot obviously place a license plate on a car without a license plate bracket. License plate brackets are usually plastic or chrome metal and are easily damaged because of where they are found. Listed below are some of the most common issues it can experience:
Rusted license plate bolts
License plates brackets are always visible on every car, so these are prone to rain and moisture exposure. These damaging elements may corrode the bolts on the bracket and the license plate. This could be a big problem for people who would want to get their license plate brackets replaced or upgraded. In case you encounter this problem, you can fix it by buying a can of WD-40 and spraying it on the rusted bolts.
Metal screws are among a license plate bracket's biggest enemies. Sometimes during installation, it is possible that you have turned this metal screw a little too tight, causing you to end up with a cracked license plate bracket. This often occurs to plastic-made license plate brackets, so you should pay attention when you're installing it on your vehicle. You might be over-tightening that screw, leading to irreparable damage on your license plate bracket.
Different license plate configurations
Your line of work may take you to another state, which would require you to register your car with a new license plate. This could pose a problem to your license plate bracket; license plates from other states might not fit comfortably with your installed bracket. It might be too large or too small for your bracket , forcing you to buy a new one. If your new license plate is not the same size as your bracket, do not force it. You might break you old license plate and complicate things further.
