    do you mean the windscreen spoiler or the bumper spoiler/valance?

    I think the screen spoiler is bonded on at the factory? anyone else?

    The bumper spoiler requires the whole bumper to come off to split it

    parts cat lists two bolts on avant - think they're behind top trim - might be a good idea for OP to check before getting the crowbar on it:unsure:
