I've been farting about recently changing bulbs in my rear number plates. Its now got to a point where the screws struggle to grip and keep the holder in. I notice there are small rubber type things that the screws went through, perhaps giving them there grip? These have sort of vanished now :lol:
Anyone got any ideas on a solution?

you could try a dot of silicone in the hole where the rubber bit was, maybe?

Put the silicon in, let it dry and then screw through the silicon, or silicon the screw in?

only on the threads of the screw/bolt though. super glue is good for fixing screws into plastic
