Question rear spoiler

When I wash my car the water gets under the spoiler where it connects to the trunk. Soap keeps coming out of it for awhile after i wash it. I blow it out with my air compressor, but seems like there is so much in there it don't all get out, and it keeps seeping out after driving it. Does anyone else have this problem? There is a rubber seal under it, i can see it. I've tried to tighten the bolts holding it on there but it didn't help much.

You could remove your spoiler and create a border out of either weather striping or automotive double-sided where the spoiler meets the trunk. If done right, this should keep water out from under your spoiler. I had the same issue on my '05 GT and doing this fixed it.

That's what quick detailer is for. Wash it, dry it, go out for a drive to get the water out of the hard to reach crevices, then hit effected areas with some QD to touch it up. At least that's what I do.

Ok so I tried to take off my rear spoiler. After I took the nuts off, it was still stuck to the trunk lid. There is a rubber seal in between the spoiler and trunk lid. Does it have a sticky side to it? Might it just be stuck from just being on there for awhile?

Try cutting through it with a piece of fishing line, sawing back and forth.

The spoiler is attached with 3M double sided tape also. Just raise the trunk when you're drying the front of the car to allow the water to drain, then dry the trunk lid last.
