License plate holder

The license plate holder on my 2002 19' Bambi is rusty. Where can I get a new bracket and how can I get the old one off?

My bracket was also rusty. It was held on with a couple of screws. Removed the bracket and light assembly, took a wire brush to them, primed with Rustoleum Primer and two coats of chrome Rustoleum. Made a new plastic lens for the light while I was at it. Looks better than new.

This is an automotive item, any auto store or car dealer should be able to help.

License plate holder

I have the same problem. I can get a new holder or paint the old one but after taking out all of the screws and pulling on the bracket/light fixture pretty hard, it will not come out. I am afraid I will break something. Is the fixture held on by a nut on the inside where I can not access? Or, does it just pop out if I pull hard enough? Thanks for any help.

Mine was also took a bit of pulling to get out. There is a rubber gasket that goes thru the skin. It fits very tight to keep water out. (At least on mine).

In 2014 they seem to have done away with holders. My plate is held with two screws and that's it. Nothing else.
