Front License Plate Block Removal

post-41637-0-99337000-1377462491_thumb.jHi Folks!

I have a 2001 Boxster S, and I want to take off the front plate mounting blocks so I can fix the bumber and get some plugs instead.

I tried unscrewing the blocks via the holes in the centers, but they seem to just spin. Short of forcing them out (and risk deforming the bumber), is there a cleaner way to get them out?

If you haven't clean your radiators and AC condensors or re-routed your front hood latch emergency pull, perhaps you may want to drop your front bumper and do a couple of things as well as remove the license plate blocks.

      Anyone have any suggestions for front license plate holder? I've heard of the kind that insert into the front tow piece--any known problems with this and are there brands you can recommend? How about US millworks?
      I've gotten pulled over 4 times for not having a front license plate! 1 ticket :(

      2002 996 TT. I was wondering if anyone has instructions on how to install the spring + plastic bracket for the gas thank door. I just ordered the parts today so it might be self explanatory but I didn't see where the spring would go for example. Any digrams or pictures would be greatly apprecaited.
      Thanks in advance.

      I'm replacing both plastic headlight brackets (the whole thing) on a 1999 911 Carrera, due to broken brackets where the electrical socket sits. These are the plastic mounts where the headlights slide into.
      I'm just trying to figure out if there's some trick to getting these things lined up right. The three (3) knurled nuts, washers, star bolts just kind of wiggle around in the slots in the metal fender part. I keep loosing up, re-adjusting, and tightening them down but haven't got the headlights to line up with the fender opening quite right. Figured I'd ask before I did too much hair pulling.
      There's got to be an easier method.
