Removing baseplate on 99 CR-V

I want to remove the Roadmaster baseplate from my 99 Honda CR-V. It doesn't look like any thing had to be removed for the installation, like body work or fascias. My question to anyone who may have installation knowledge on this vehicle is, can I just remove the bolts remove the baseplates and maybe reinstall any bolts without the front of the car collapsing in a heap? I mean are any of the attachment points for the baseplate also attachment points for auto parts? Thanks in advance for any help given.

Glenn

Did you save the hard plastic cover plate? If so you can take the plate loose and bolt it right back on. If not I would not put the bolts from the base plate back in. There will be water and trash popping up and will more that likely corrode the threads. No harm to the frame by taking the baseplate off.

I did not install the baseplate and never heard anything about a cover plate from CW who did it. What does it cover?

I have a Roadmaster base plate that I installed on my 1998 CRV. Nothing about the install or uninstall that would cause any problems with car falling apart. There is a large bolt back up under the back of the motor that would be taken out to remove the base plate mounting bar and then replaced. Should present no problems at all. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the input guys, also talked to a Roadmaster tech. I am ready to do it, but have to do it outside on the ground and have to wait for it to stop raining.
