Depending on the type there is a motor or magnetic pin system. motors can fail and the magnetic pin type well they can rust up or even the grease in them can freeze up and stop movement. also on some models there is a auto mode this will activate the spoiler at certain speeds. these are prone for failure, for some reason they stop reading the speedo , then in auto or in manual it will not work. also in cold weather you should have it turn'd off... this is recommended from porsche something about only use in above temps of 6.0c 42.8F is minimum low temp. the temp sensor on some turn off the spoiler controls at this speed or a faulty temp sensor not reading the right temp will do this.

964, rear spoiler won't work

Start by checking remote switch. Test to see if there is power at the spoiler motor. If there is power getting to the motor check for bad ground. Finally remove the cable that drives the spoiler up and down and apply 12v dc to the motor. If the motor turns check to see if you can turn the cable without the motor and that the spoiler moves. I all power checks out and the spoiler won't move by turning the cable, the gearing that the cable attaches to is most likely damaged.

It probably needs lubrication. This is a known issue on the 997 Carrera. Mine made terrible noises while moving until I lubed it with some GP lithium grease I had laying around.

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.

Rear spoiler does not work.

The rear spoiler is controlled by a Rear Spoiler Control Module. Fuse 35 (30A) and Fuse 5 (7.5A) located in the fuse panel behind left side of dash provide power to the control module. After ensuring that the fuses are good, I would toggle the Rear Spoiler Switch to see if the servo-motor works properly. It is located under the steering wheel underneath the flat part of the dash.
