Rear Spoiler Installation Steps

 

  • Open your trunk and look under the door. Remove the hard fabric board to expose the framework of the trunk door.
  • Use the two plastic alignment tabs to tape the spoiler in place with the centering hole inside each fastener opening. This will allow you to center the spoiler and tape it in place to place the drill hole correctly. Once in place, turn the spoiler over and center its position on the trunk door in its mounting position. Then, once it’s centered, tap the alignment tabs down to the trunk door.
  • Pull the spoiler away from the trunk door, leaving the alignment tabs stuck to the trunk. Use a punch to push through the alignment tabs and mark the trunk’s surface.
  • Remove the tabs and drill a hole that will average ¼ inch. Drill both punch marks through the trunk door.
  • Use a screwdriver to screw the fasteners into the spoiler. Tighten all screws tightly.
  • Replace the inside deck lid cover, close your trunk door, and enjoy your ride’s new style.
