Hello, first post here.  My parents just bought a slightly used 2012 Cadillac SRX with 7K on the clock.  The got the new license plate for it and I have 6 million nuts bolts and screws and cant find a single one that fits.  Can somebody please tell me what size screws I need for the plate?  Thank you. 

By the way, this is a very nice car loaded with all the options and I am pretty impressed with it.

Just go to any auto parts store...they will have a set of screws. These are typically a coarser thread and the screws are either galvanized or stainless to resist rust.

they usually have the screws with the plastic piece they screw into.
Usually in boxes labeled HELP.  (red box)... or youll see products by Dorman

Thank you all its much appreciated!   Seems like its some sort of odd ball size.   I searched online and in the manual and did a search here and could not come up with anything.
