Rear Spoiler Question

Hi Folks, the rear spoiler on my S is attached by some kind of adhesive (looks like thick black double-sided adhesive tape). It appears to be coming loose and I'm wndering what you guys recommend for reattaching the spoiler. Tx

Look inside the trunk and see if there are any studs protruding from the spoiler with nuts on them. If so, you can remove the spoiler get some 3m high bond double sided tape and put it back together.

That's not double-sided tape, that is probably the gaskets that go between the spoiler and the trunk lid to keep water from going through the holes that are drilled to mount the spoiler. There should be 4 threaded mounting studs that hold the spoiler in place. Loosen those up, gently push the gasket back into place, tighten the mounts and you should be good to go.

I am having the same problem as Frontier1. Does anyone know where to get just the gasket? Shoot, I'd settle for just the gasket material, I cut it myself. Thanks!

I just bought that same type of spoiler on ebay. Inside the box was the spoiler,2bolts,adhesive primer and a roll of 2 sided tape. I really don't want to drill any holes in my S as I may not like the look later on. There have been others who have used 3m tape and claim it holds real well on track and off. Any advice would be helpful...TIA

I just got the same one (e-bay, OEM Thing). I just used the shop's (bodyshop I work at) heavy duty 2-way tape, adhesion promoter and a couple alcohol pads to clean the surfaces. Make sure you clean the surface well and cover the spoiler with the tape. Should hold. I figured if it doesn't then I'll drill holes. Did this yesterday and it looks great. I'll post pics of the finished product later. Good luck wwaallyy!

Looks like an Invidia Q300.
