Hello, the previous owner of my CLS320 fitted a ghastly fake chrome plastic number plate holder so I'm trying to revert it back to standard, however upon changing the plate holder they decided to remove the hexagonal rivnut type fixings that you would screw into through the plate holder leaving four gaping holes behind the number plate.

I'm having trouble trying to work out exactly what I need to fill these holes so I can screw in an original holder, the parts diagram I'm using gives me part number: A2019900458 but upon searching this part number it brings up a rivnut that looks too long and thin whereas the rivnut pictured on the parts diagram looks thicker and much more stubby.....

Any ideas?

Thanks

I was always under the impression that the Rivnut, once inserted and the Bolt/Screw tightened up, it pulled the Extra Length of the Hexagonal Stem in towards the Boot Lid and became solid! Similar to a Pop Rivet! :rolleyes:

If that is not the case then a simple Bolt/Screw and Nut would suffice! :oops:
