I was walking to my truck Friday after work and noticed that my front license plate was missing, when I got closer to the truck I found the plate (thank god) and the mounting bracket lying on the ground. The little plastic clips had been broken so I think some body backed into me. The hit must not have been hard at all cause there was no other damage to my truck and trust me I checked thoroughly. I unfortunately didn't think to take any pictures
As far as I know in Ontario it is illegal to drive without your front license plate on or at the very least visible on your dashboard. So I called up the local Ford dealer in the city I work and asked if they stocked them, they had none in stock but offered to order me one at a cost of $47.50! I then called the dealership who sold me my truck (which is 25 minutes North of where I live) and they also didn't stock one. But they offered to take one off of a brand new 2012 F150 and sell it to me for $21.00, thats good service and a good deal in my book. Got the new bracket put on without issue but still not the best way to spend a Friday evening!
The dealership said that they get people in all the time asking about license plate brackets, there really isn't much holding them on.
