I recently Purchased my ford c-max energi used and discovered in the process of installing the front plates, that i have no front screws. I addition, the screws from the rear plate are too small for the hole. Is there anything i can to to fix this? and does ford make larger screws? 

 

I live in a two plate state, so I can't last long without the plate. I took a spare body fastener screw I had laying around from my last car and used that to hold it in place, however i know this is not a permanent solution.

Just go to a hardware store and try some different size machine screws to see what size you need.

The front plate bracket is installed at the factory with 3 large rivets.  I bought my car in a one plate state and the dealer sent me the bracket and rivets in the mail.  I couldn't find a rivet gun large enough to install them, so I went with some heavy duty fasteners.  I decided to install the bracket upside down, so the plate didn't sit so high up the grill, so I had to modify the mounting anyway. (I don't have any photos, but you can see how it looks on Smiling Jacks profile, He did the same thing)

Are you referring to the screws that attach the license plate to the bracket?
