Rear spoiler

I need to remove my rear spoiler due to the 3m tape coming loose. I haven't looked at the trunk liner yet, but I'm wanting to know how it attaches. Any tips removing the liner would be appreciated. Thanks TC

I took a look at it, do the plastic pins just pop out, and can they be reused.

Yes and yes. Just pull the inner pin out about a 1/4", then both pieces pop right out.

There are also two round rubber pads that need to be popped out. There are four bolts total. Two under the trunk liner and two under the round rubber pads.

Ignore the dirt, I was caught out in a tsunami. Here's a picture, it came on the car, grabber blue told me what it was but I forget.

To pull the inner pin, does it turn, or do you just pop it put with a small screwdriver?

Flathead screw driver. Same kind of pins on your radiator cover.

You can get it with a finger nail. I believe that's the rtr spoiler.

Nope on the far right and left side. They are directly under the outter edges of the spoiler.

Look like an rtr to me too. 3m is what I'm using. It's weird that it would be coming up if its bolted on as well.

It's just loose on one end, they probably didn't strip the wax when it was installed would be my guess.

Just some automotive 3M tape. I purchased a roll from Lowes and have used it on my louvers and deck lid panel and all are still holding tight.

Just alcohol prepp it!

Was able to pull up a video on you tube. I'm thinking the outer stud was over torqued and has snapped off, I can't see it looking under it. I never knew Vaughn Gittn Jr. designed the rtr spoiler.
