Installing GT spoiler on 09 base Vibe

Post by annvibe09 » Wed Jul 03, 2019 4:43 pm

Hi everyone -- I have a question I am hoping someone may be able to shed some light. I bought a GT trunk lid to get the spoiler. I am trying to remove the spoiler but to no luck. I undid the 5 screws but the spoiler will not budge. I read on some posts that there are some clips to pop off but I am not sure how to do this -- I don't want to pull on the spoiler too much so as to not damage it. Any thoughts on how to remove? Thanks in advance.

Here is what I have for info on the install of the rear spoiler:
1) Install the spoiler to the liftgate by aligning the clips and studs to the liftgate holes.

And then it going on with the rest. I have not had one of these off, so I can not say for sure, but I wounder if it is like the lower body side moldings with plastic clips and alignment holes where the studs would fit into.

I managed to get it off but it was a lot of work. There are four retainer clips that hold the spoiler down in addition to the 5 bolts. I eye-balled the retainer clips and drilled holes on the lift gate to pry out. I don't need the extra lift gate so did this route. It's not an easy pop off job as I thought!
