^ What he said. Once you undo the nuts under the trunk (4). Then wiggle it loose if you can at all. Next, get some string or fishing line. Put it between the plastic base and the paint of the trunk. Cut through it like a saw, going back and forth with your hands. You will get caught up on all 4 bolts. Just work around them as best you can. You will get through it. then just pull straight up to get it off. You can use a heat gun or hair dryer to get the remaining foam stuff up. Just heat an peal and then you will just have 4 holes and an outline from where your old one use to be.

PULL!!!! We wrapped one of those plastic putty knifes in a soft rag and wedged that between the trunk and spoiler after cutting through with fish line. Also we had the car parked in the sun all day.
