I know many have had this problem in the past but I can't find any mention of if it is possible to access the back of the riv nuts that the number plate screws screw into from inside the tailgate.

I'm not keen on drilling them out so the plan is to give the screws/rivnuts a good soaking with plus gas/WD40 then grip the rivnut and try and turn the screw.

When I had this problem, I removed the rear plastic interior trim - it all pops off after a little persuasion. It made accessing the riv nuts from the other side possible...
