    I have been trying to take the screws out of my number plate and i have managed to kinda strip them, is there any any way of getting them out before i do a Jeramy clarkson hammer attack on it.


    AND

    Is there any other grill from any other audi range that will fit a audi s3 facelift model?


    cheers peps... :keule:

    they lock shut and you can adjust the tightness of them ,so you can grip them enough to undo while they are locked onto the screw

    one other way I've done before in work is to literally rip off the plate and then get some mole grips on the screws if they don't move at all, but that way is a bit cowboy special way of getting them off , other than that don't really know soz man

    Mate mine were totally rusted on when i went to put pressed plates on. I snapped the plate off and used mole grips to twist the screws off! I would grip the screw with pliers or something and try to twist them.

    Get a flathead watchmakers screwdriver. Make sure its a flathead as the phillps cross head will just strip it.

    Just did mine this evening as mine are pretty stripped. May struggle to loosen at first as it'll be quite tight but I used pliers attached around the screwdriver to turn it.
