Rear spoiler on a 2005 equinox

Can't get the rear spoiler off the 2005 equinox. taken 3 screws. one on each end and one in the middle. spoilers loose but something still holding it behind the midlle screw. don't see anymore screws, but i see what appears to be a yellow groment behind the middle screw. the spoiler was taken off in chicago, where my daughter was at the time. dont know if they lost a screw that maybe went behind the middle screw and replaces it with a groment or something, but whatever it is, cant get it out. need to remove the 3rd brake light that is bolted under the spoiler, so it must come off first. this brake light has no screws facing you,like the newer models. bolted underneath the spoiler. what holding the spoiler on. can lift the ends and the middle about 1/4 inch, but binding behind the middle drew that was taken out. still need your expertise.

Just took mine off. There are three 10mm bolts that gofrom inside the liftgate into the spoiler-one on each end of the spoiler, oneaccessible through the large hole in the center of the gate. There arealso three pegs (that you can't see) mounted on the spoiler just under theupper rear taillight. The pins plug into holes on the liftgate. There's one peg towards each end of the taillight, back towards the roof. There's one in the center of the spoiler, towards the window. They'retight and solidly their holes. There is no tape or glue-just bolts andpegs. You don't have to cut or drill anything. The only tools you'llneed are a 10mm socket, an extension, and a ratchet.

I discovered the pegs when I got fed up trying to figure out what was holdingit on, said to heck with it, I know I may break something, but I've got to fixwhat's broke and gave it good, firm lift up from the window edge. Lo andbehold, it popped off--much to my relief. I fixed what I needed to(stopping the spoiler from vibrating madly as I rode down the road), and justpopped and bolted it back on. You don't need any kind of kit toreinstall it.

Once it's off, you can access the taillight and sprayer. Noproblem.

My only concern now is what I would have had to do if I'd broken one of thepegs. Thankfully, I didn't have to do that, so if you do, I can'thelp. It's easier than it looks, but it is scary

You will obviously need a spoiler, but also a fitting kit which is available from Volvo. It fits onto the inside of the tailgate. Will take about half an hour to fit.

SOURCE: How do you take off 2004 Ford Taurus rear spoiler wings?

You'll need to open the trunk and remove the trim along the top of the trunk. The trim will be secured by some screws that should be along the perimeter of the trim. Once the screws are out, gently pop the trim off (there will be retaining clips that you don't want to break) and then you can access the bolts securing the spoiler onto the trunk. If you plan to not use a spoiler, you will need to find something to plug up the holes to prevent water and dust from getting into the trunk.

SOURCE: ford ka rear spoiler

You need to look on under side of spoiler, and match studs. (two way threaded bolts) to the wholes. after that mark where the stud wholes need to go through the trunk then drill wholes a 16th bigger than the studs. After drilling wholes through the trunk get sillicone sealer around wholes. Install spoiler and install bolts on the underside of your trunk.

SOURCE: crossfire spoiler and electric roof dont work

I have a crossfire and this has happened to me. When it has I have found that the divider, (for the lack of a better word) that is in the truck is not properly seated. Check to be sure it is all the way into the slot that it fits in, especially on the left side. When it is seated correctly the top will go down. Hope this helps.

I recently tried the DIY service and repair manuals from a website and it actually helped me repair transmission problem in my jcb 3cx site-master. It would'nt move forward or reverse, engine was good both solenoids for forward and reverse worked, but still couldn't diagnose the problem.
I don't have much technical knowledge but I just followed it step-wise, and now it works perfect! covers wiring, codes, diagrams, torque specs, PCV, everything

How to remove the rear automatic boot spoiler of a 2005 porsche 911 turbo?


What you need to do is raise the spoiler via the switch to the full extent and place pieces of wood between the spoiler and body, then using a 'C' spanner to fit round the top of the rams and locate into the small hole (i found the multi purpose spanner that comes with pushbikes has just the right fitting) turn each ram 1/4 turn, but be careful because when it releases from the spoiler the ram will retract into its housing with great force taking the spanner with it and damaging the body. good luck!

How do you replace the brake light on the rear spoiler on a 2001 Hyundai Accent?


This is the Spoiler Dude. The spoiler light is attached with screws to the spoiler. You must remove the screws and then the spoiler light will come away from the spoiler. Clip the two wires ( Black & Red ). Attached the new spoiler light ( I can get that for you) with a sleeve. Test the new light with the brake pedal depressed. Screw in the new light and that is it. If you have any questions.

Can't get the spoiler, that holds the 3rd brake light on the off


regarding chevy equinox spoiler there are three 10mm bolts one on each end and one in the middle then there are three pins in the middle that snap in. these are very difficult to release without breaking them. If they break use a two part adhesive sparingly to hold the spoiler down or it will hit when you open the hatch.
