Depends on what sealant has been used to stick it down/seal it to stop water ingress, only one way to find out Very Happy

Slow and steady, specially don't let one side pop out when you lift the other or the in mould studs will drop onto your boot lid like mine did briefly.

You'll probably be surprised at the state of the boot with scratches etc from what the spoiler has left anyway just watch you dont scratch the surrounding areas the spoiler wont cover when its back on. When I was getting mine done i just covered up the holes with electrical grommets and duct tape for the time being. I've got a wrx spoiler in the house your welcome to put that on until you get yours back.

Thinking about it now, I should have masked the area immediately around the spoiler "feet" in case I dropped the bugger like I did. Of course ten times easier if you can grab another pair of hands for the important part of removal.

Thanks for the advice & offer of the use of the spare spoiler. Gonna take time easing it off then cover holes up with tape. Don't need spoiler as its a weekend car but ta for offer anyways.

Should've said that it's an aftermarket spoiler, don't know if that'll make a difference or not. Also, when I come to fit it, I take it I should use some kind of sealant around the holes. I've got some of that caravan sealant stuff somewhere, the kind that doesn't dry but stays "claggy!"

Mines stuck on with Sikaflex around the holes and perimeter where it touches the boot. I also try to open the boot from the edge and not the spoiler itself so that it doesn't put stress on the spoiler.
