Side scoop removal

Anyone know what holds the side scoops on a 14 GT?
Bought mine off the lot with them, would like to remove them but don't know if there are fasteners or just tape holding them on.

Yes, 3m tape. Best to use fishing line and a plastic putty knife for removal. Do it in the sun, or use a heat gun/hairdryer.

You might also want to squirt some alcohol to weaken the bond, but careful not to combine with a heat gun.

Why? Lol the best thing to use is your fingers and a heat gun. I work at an accessory shop and have do this several times a week. Might get some blisters from rubbing if you don't switch between fingers lol. No chance of scratching it then and it really is the easiest and fastest way I have found..

+1 sounds ab right.

OP if you're not comfortable doing this yourself, take it to a reputable tint/auto decal shop. They'll have them off in under 15 mins.

I believe some of the New Edges that came with OEM side scoops actually had nasty "holes" in the 1/4 panels under the scoops.

Very simple, nylon fishing line or dental floss. No need for a heat gun. In fact I wouldn't even consider it. Heat might warp the side scoop or damage the paint. It'll take you less than 5 minutes a side, I'd like to have the original ones, shoot me a private message.
