    Yep. And my car only has the top two holes, not all four.

    I used peel and stick foam weather stripping. Covered the back and then used all for bolts to attach it.
    You get the idea...
    blah blah blah yadda yadda

    Neoprene sheets can be had from Meijer for like $0.70; I trimmed one of those down.

    For me, it's the lock that rattles though - not the plate. And I anticipate effin' up my latch pretty soon.

    Re: Best way to stop license plate rattling??

    mine is bolted with two screws...

    #1. take off the black plastic frame (mine said gateway chevrolet on it)

    #2. take it off & use some liquid deadener on the back of it to make it less metallic on the backside

    #3. while it's still off, spray some expanding foam on the back of it & screw it back onto the car & press down...before the foam dries.

    my plate is like a brick when I knock on it....don't even need the screws now!



    best sig of all time

    Re: Best way to stop license plate rattling??

    with mine I just used a strip of dynamat behind the plate and bolted down all four holes securely, never rattled since, also I second the ideas of using foam and such, that would probably work as well

    Re: Best way to stop license plate rattling??

    i just used weather stripping around the edges of my license plate. it only had two top holes, so i changed the top two screws to allen head because i had two same size matching allen head bolts. i cut the bolts, put them through the bottom holes and used a nut on the backside of the plate holding the plate and the license plate frame together keeping that from rattling.

    My license plate doesn't rattle... Must be the only thing made right in the back half of the car....

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    go to a local store like a hardware store or even like a craft store and buy some 1" double sided foam stick tape for like $2.50 and go around the edge of your license plate and the bolt in your license plate.
