  • 10mm socket
  • ratchet


Step 1

Open the trunk lid

Step 2

Remove 4 bolts. Use your 10mm socket and remove the 4 bolts circled below on the underside of the trunk lid.  On the 2 inner ones, you may get just the nut, or both the nut and stud.

Step 3

Close the trunk lid.

Step 4

Pull up on each end of the spoiler. In addition to the 4 nuts/bolts, the spoiler is held on by 2 adhesive pads toward the center of the trunk lid.  It shouldn’t be too hard to break free, but don’t be afraid to put some force into it.  Once both of the adhesive pads pop free, the spoiler should be loose.  It’s likely to be dirty underneith.


Line it up with the holes, and put the nuts/bolts back in. Consider replacing adhesive strips and/or using some loctite to ensure it doesn’t come loose.
