As above, give the boot a clean.

I also recommend sitting the spoiler on the boot before you install just to make sure you are happy with where it will sit (you don't want to stick the thing down and then realise it's a bit wonky!!)

Just to add to this, I would recommend the 3M VHB tape, this is what I have mine stuck on with and it isn't going anywhere...

I use it at work and no jokes, I have stuck chairs to the ceiling with it....

Hi, I recently fitted one a few weeks back it is really easy but takes a bit of patience.

Watch the two video links below to give you some tips about installing it.

Make sure it is a warm day, over 17C.

After you have cleaned the bootlid with Isopropyl alcohol, I would:

1) use the 3M Primer 94, which doubles the adhesive strength of the 3M tape. Usually costs less than 5 from EBay.
2) Use a hair dryer or heat gun (low setting) to heat up the area of the lid you sticking the spoiler and heat up the rear spoiler, particularly at the ends.


It is best to have another person helping you and a couple of microfibre towels to press down working towards the middle but concentrate on the ends more.







The spoiler will really finish the car off.

Best of luck

There's a reason why they are called spoilers
