    From the looks of parts fiche 09-Body and Accessories Upper Cargo, which includes the rear fender and rear fender extension, it appears BRP doesn't want you to know. At least that's how I view it.

    I have not looked but does the strip come off? If so the only way would be to remove the back panel. I had mine off a while back but didn't look for anything like that.

    I put my plate on after getting it in the mail. It went on with a couple of screws into the hard plastic mount; no nuts or bolts.

    What spyderdave said. The F3T/L requires nuts/bolts. The 2020+ RT doesn't. Just screw the plate to the plastic. Screws not bolts.

    It can be done, but you are going to have some scars when you get done. Just installed the license plates on the new F3L for Linda. Several tries, many cuss words, and a big martini when I was finished.

    My hands are medium size. You have to stick your hand up between the fender and the tire. Then, start looking for those blankey, blank holes or nuts you have to remove. The working area is sub par, and to small, IMO. And that's no joke. Perhaps the designers of the product will be relegated to changing out license plates for eternity. And that's no joke either.

    Maybe I miss read your post/question. If you want to install a tag simply unscrew the screws that's there. Where the plate mounts is a strip with several threaded holes in it to attach the tag.

    Also the op is asking about the 2020 RT L not a F3L which is different I believe.

    Again, the F3T/L requires nuts/bolts. The 2020+ RTs do not.
