Screw Stuck...
Ok, well I went to install my Carbign Craft Rear Lic. Plate Backing today and one of the screws that holds on the lic. plate is stuck. I tried just usin a screw driver at first and no luck, then I tried a power drill and that just locked up, still no luck. Anything else I should try?

Thanks in advance!

Those screws rust themselves in there after years of that Chicago weather no doubt!

I had the exact same problem the day the buyer of my 03 came to pick up the car...I sprayed a ton of that Toyota lubricant for frozen bolts on and around the screws, let it set, and finally worked the screw off so I could remove the plates and seal the deal!! After a couple turns to separate the screw head from the plate, I used a vice grip to expedite the process. The screw obviously needed to be replaced after all was said and done. Good luck! thumbsup
