Default Fixing license plate in an Fiat Adventure

This is very puzzling. I got my Fiat Adventure a couple of days back and today the dealer dropped the license plates in my office (in my absence). The puzzle is how to fix these plates.
There are no holes or slots or such in either the Adventure or in the plates. Do I have to Fevi stick it? Any help is much appreciated.

Note from mod: Please use correct section while posting

What no holes in the Bumper too???

Thats strange..why dont you go to the dealer and ask him to solve the problem...Dont try making holes yourself..except the dealer ask you to do so,,


By the way was this the right place to post this topic..
I think the Mods will do their work..

There are double sided stickers from 3m and other makers, Make 2 inches long pieces and stick the Perimeter of the Plate and the diagonal of the plate .

Usually there will be holes in the bumper and matching holes are made in the license plate, and then fixed with screws. But how come there are no holes seen in the bumper?

better is go to the dealer and get it fixed rather than making hopes to bumber yourself. it may take max 15mins to get it done.

Go to the dealer and get it fixed. Fixing the number plate involves drilling of 4 holes in the front bumper. I am not sure about the boot lid where the number plate sits but I guess that it might need some drilling too.

Got it done by the dealer. The holes was drilled on the plates and just screwed it to the body where the plate holders were treated like wood. Hope it stays put.

Mods: Will be more careful in choosing the section.
