Model S front license plate bracket

Recommended Posts

So I plan to put the front plate on eventually and I noticed the special bolt for the bracket
Does anyone have this tool to borrow or could someone 3D print me one?

I don’t have the 90 degree pliers either so either way I’m buying something unless I find other means plus if I can do it right I will.

I don't know what you are asking for here.

Model S plate attachment doesn't require much going on based on my 2016 Model S I had.

I don't have a tool for the bolts that secure the bracket to the car... they are like an inverted torx head, thus the links for the tools i speak of

Hmm... front bracket came on my car and if I remember right it was some sticky tape and a single bolt under the bumper that held things up - pop that bolt and win.

I have the second gen of that bracket.... 2 bolts, no tape (it doesn't even touch the front of bumper cover) and it was removed for the PPF installation. Other than these specialty bolts its not complicated at all.... I suppose I could also buy 2 regular bolts of my choosing and not use the proprietary ones
