For some strange reason Honda / Acura does not include any hardware with their license plate brackets. With this being said you can go about this two different ways.The first way is you can just go down to your local hardware store and get some self tapping screws and drill some pilot holes in your bumper and install this directly to the bumper using the screws. Front plates are getting old. States that issue 2 plates just use it as a reason kinda like a busted taillight. Ive used no front plate in NY for the past say 8 years and never had any front plate issues. Not sure if the SC uses the same bracket but ide send you mine if it would beat the price of buying new. I have a Honda Passport 1998, and I replace the alternator for it. I did check the new one and the old one, they are just the same. The problem is when I install new one, it hard to get in to the bracket even I try to wiggle and hammer it by wooden block.

I know it'll be cheaper to install it myself, but I'm afraid to damage the front bumper since I have to drill holes to attach the bracket. If a dealership does it they'll know exactly how to do it since they do it all the time.
It's Honda that I'd be dealing with. I know they're expensive, but would a bracket installation really be that bad through them?

I've seen people ruin their bumpers and also drill right through the AC condenser trying to mount a front license plate. You would be better off just putting the license plate in the trunk and driving with out it mounted!
Dealer is your best bet
Get a body shop to do it, it will be cheaper, just make sure it is centred as opposed to the far left or right, rice boy.
It's not called a bumper, but a fascia. Look for small dimples in it where the bracket is supposed to go. The dimples are where you are supposed to drill the holes. Most car fascias have them. Fireboy and watergirl in the forest temple.

- How do I get license plates and registration after purchasing a car from the dealership? I bought a 'certified used' Honda from a honda dealership in North Carolina. They gave me a slip of paper that says 30 day temporary marker receipt and a paper tag. I paid for the tax and tag so I assume they are handling this. But do I need to pay them a visit to pick up my tag? How does this work. It wasn't explained well. Any advice is appreciated. I haven't calle them yet because I want to be a bit more educated so I don't sound stupid when I call.
- New alternator doesn't fit or it really hard to get in to the bracket, what should I do? I have a Honda Passport 1998, and I replace the alternator for it. I did check the new one and the old one, they are just the same. The problem is when I install new one, it hard to get in to the bracket even I try to wiggle and hammer it by wooden block. Should I grind the new alternator? Or is there any good solution for it?
