Hi, try loosening the catch on the trunk lid but do not remove it and the lock mechanism, close the trunk lid but not fully, then pull the backseats down and climb into the trunk. Adjust the lock and latch until they meet up and lock together ( This will take some time and patience is essential). Fasten the Catch and Lock back up. Then retry opening and closing, if it still doesnt fit just do the same again, just needs a bit of adjustment.

hope this helps. jonno

How to install a spoiler for 2001 chevy impala


If the spoiler has mounting studs then holes will need to be drilled into the trunk lid so that the spoiler can be bolted on from inside. You must figure out where to drill the holes so that the spoiler will be centered on the trunk lid. One method is to apply shoe polish or machinist dye to the end of the mounting studs. carefully place the spoiler onto the deck lid where you would like it to be. Press straight down and then lift it straight off with one motion. The spots that are left behind is where the holes should be drilled. The holes can be enlarged slightly to allow for final adjustment. Use spacers between the spoiler and the deck lid to keep the paint from being damaged when closing the trunk lid.
