IIRC it is held on with double sided tape. Take so fishing line and pull it under it...

ON topic: it should be better when its hot out, slice through the tape like butter

a buddy helps when doing this. also becareful not the pull off from one side because the otherside will dent the trunk. its a PITA with one person.

I did mine alone. I had some rubber pipe insulation that I wadded up under the wing as I cut it free. Since you don't have that handy, try some towels and sponges.

barely noticeable to everyone, but you sure will know it's there and that's the worst. at least for me.

I removed my old spoiler all by myself and I ended up denting and scratching my trunk slightly. But it isn't noticable. I am still happy with my car that will be 4 years old this December, without a single door ding.

I used a fishing line to cut the tape and somehow it ended up scratching the trunk. I used the same thing to remove badges and it didn't do anything.

I like the no spoiler look. I think I'm gonna start looking for a spoilerless red SE trunk lid.

it does look sweet i woulda thought about keeping it off if i wouldn't have had 4 holes in the trunk

Yes, but I think a GT without a spoiler is unique and looks much much better. All GT's have a spoiler of some kind...it would be cool to be different.

Mine came with double-sided adhesive already on the mounting feet.
