I'm sure everyone seeing this will wonder as I am: Why in the world, would you want to take them off??

Re: how to remove side scoops?

They are probably attached by 3m sticky tape, and if so you can remove them with fishing wire. But why would you?

I hate those useless accents. The mustang looks a lot cleaner without them. IMO.

If you have a GT/CS and you take them off I would think it may lower the value. California Special is about a $2000 option and side scoops are part of the package. I understand if it's not your taste to have them on. But, you should hold on to them if you remove them for the future. If its not a CS it's probably an after market part and won't effect the value.

Re: how to remove side scoops?

Actually side scoops are part of the accessory package 5 and are the same as the CS ones.

Re: how to remove side scoops?

they came with the car. they are nice but for some reason i just really like to have a clean look. I also want to remove the hood scoop as well which will also be for sale. I just think it's a much cleaner look in my opinion, if anyone is interested let me know I should have them removed both pretty soon

Re: how to remove side scoops?

The fishing line, being slid underneath, "cutting them away from the tape/body"-after heating the whole perimeter with a hair dryer..Then their are products, ie., under the Technician's Choice brand: TEC90 Adhesive Remover, to remove the goo from the body..

Re: how to remove side scoops?

Removal of the hood scoop will leave two screw holes in the hood.... just so you know before you jack up all of the tape and put bulges in your hood trying to pry it off with the bolts attached.
