    Are you sure it was stolen?
    If it was stolen then there should be the remains of the two clips within the holding plate
    The clips break easily and stopping can cause it to fall out, the driver being unaware of this

    I have seen quite a few held in place using very strong tape
    Equally, had a few claims that our car wash has broken it, the claims refused as the photos I have taken clearly show it was already broken

    That's was probably me! Lol
    I had mine on for all of 2 weeks and it got nicked in Tesco car park, colour coded as well!
    Couldn't get a second hand one at all, ended up buying a brand new one and left it chrome.
