Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Any intel on the turnaround time for these stickers? I sent the application in over a month ago and haven't seen anything. They haven't cashed the check yet.

Thanks. Not encouraging as those suggest this takes 3-5 months before they cash the check and start processing it. But good to know so I don't panic thinking it got lost in the mail.

I mailed the application 6/14. Today, I got the stickers, so 3 months and 2 days from start to finish.

Interestingly, the certificate says it was issued 8/17, but the post mark is 9/13.

Should I sign my FTB return when it is due and then sit on it for nearly a month before mailing? :roll:

Also interesting is that the sticker instructions say to place 2 on the sides, and 2 on the front and none on the rear. I'm really surprised they don't want any of the 4 on the rear.

This sounds like a joke.
I definitely placed one on the back bumper

It's a typo on the sticker backing. The two smaller stickers go on the left front bumper and the rear right of the vehicle.

Except that it has front in bold font and a picture of both stickers placed on the front of the car. Seems a little too much to be a simple typo.

That was the directions I received in 2018 for my Clarity - one on each side. But this set of directions is distinctly different.
