i work at a ford dealership in mississauga, and when we do our PDI is when WE install the plate bracket... i have never seen a vehicle delivered with it except for like f150s and stuff... but all cars, they are installed by us in the shop.. so im almost 100% sure if you tell the dealer not to have it riveted in during the pdi.... you will have no front plate bracketCurious... As I've now seen two different setups locally at dealerships..
For those of you in places that require front plates... Are your cars arriving at the dealership with the plate bracket pre installed? Or are your dealers installing them?
Are your rivets into the bumper itself, or into the black mesh grille?
Anyone in a front plate location, who's car came without a front bracket attached already?
One dealership had the bracket riveted into the black mesh area, and on had it riveted through the painted bumper area itself.
I have requested nothing to be attached to mine, but.... nobody has been able to tell me if they are coming pre attached from the factory or if it's being done in the dealership.
