I just purchased a new 2017 Lincoln Continental and when I attempted to put the license plate on, the mounting holes don't line up with the license plate.  I have a Michigan Plate.  

Only two of the four mounting holes line up.  What's up with this design.  Are different states in the USA using a smaller plate?

What's the remedy?

On most new vehicles you only use the top 2 screws and the bottom two are rubber tips that go into the bottom plate holes for alignment.   Is that what you're seeing?   Can you post pics?

It's supposed to use a bracket that is riveted to the bumper.
