    Trying to remove the spoiler off my Saloon, it's either got more screws holding it than what I can see, or it's just stuck.

    I've removed 4 screws so far... Are there more hidden, or does it just need a good shoving to get it off ?

    Thanks,
    Ferret !

    There was only 4 screws on mine when I took it off. Like Stk said above, someone has probably bodged it with bonding sealer...

    If it is sealed on, what kinda damage am I likely to cause by yanking it off ?

    I'm not bothered about the paintwork on the boot (It's got rust on, so it's no use to anyone, anyway) I just don't want to damage the spoiler.

    But, I'm going to attempt to stick it on the Coupe - Will it fit if it's from a Saloon ?

    Thanks,
    Ferret !

    Saloon spoilers are slightly longer than coupe ones....

    Dont worry Ferret. I made the same mistake a couple of years ago. I found that the coupe spoiler wouldnt fit my old 318 saloon...

    Measure it up... It might fit.

    Chances are slim - Maybe someone else might know for sure.
