    Owner with Factory Fitted Spoiler Needed

    Guys, my turn to ask for some help please.

    Need 2 people with 20 minutes, hand tools & a factory fitted spoiler on a 3dr & on a 5dr as would like some pics please for research purposes.

    Would only need to remove 2 trims, 4-6 screws & effort pulling trims of from there spring clips & then pics & replace parts as were.

    You may get away with just pulling 1 trim of & pulling it aside for pics.

    Telephone support can be given to remove if need be & its very simple so if not an expert doesnt matter, PM if willing.

    Doesnt matter which as long as its a factory fitted as its bolted on not with sealant.

    Yeah I have stuck mine on before, but with some work I'm doing I want access to the light.

    Chances are mate, it will be the s-line Nige is looking for, as these were bolted on. If it is a sport model and people have put the s-line spoiler on after, then I would say they cut the lugs of the spoiler and attached using as mentioned above , tiger seal or similar.

    You sure about that mate?
    Every 3dr s-line spoiler i've seen has been bonded on (with tape) and also screwed on.
    Not sure about 5 door ones.

    Thanks J, Marty has kindly been at it already, but it maybe good to confirm from a number of people, so yes if you can spare 20 minutes that would be great.

    its just a cold so should be right as rain in a day or two. I'm happy to unbolt mine too if need be - when I fitted it I wasn't sure how the foam bits were attached so I just temporarily bolted it on & that was over a year ago lol.

    I have some from N8, but as yours is a facelift, then yes mate if you can please, just confirms across the years, just under the trims where the spoiler bolts to the boot lid.

    TBH confirmed today you can pull the top trim away which pops 3 spring clips & allows a cam into the small area to see the bolts hidden away.

    Basically the trim that covers the spoiler bolts & the high level brake light wiring, just lift that trim away from the bootlid & see behind for the spoiler bolts please, thanks.
