2007 M45 Trunk Spoiler Question

Postby Poirot » Thu Aug 26, 2021 5:39 am

Morning All, quick question. Is the trunk mounted spoiler attached via double-sided tape, or is it bolted? I want to get it refinished by the detail shop next time I put her in for the winter waxing. I didn't see it in the shop manual.

Thanks
Poirot

Looks like both. Bolts at the ends with tape along its length.

All the Nissan/Infiniti spoilers I'm aware of are set up that way. Some have pawl studs in addition to the stud-and-nut fasteners. The best way to remove the spoiler is to take the fasteners loose, soak the gap between the spoiler and trunk lid with adhesive remover, then slide a thin plastic scraper underneath starting at one end while prying upward with a finesse tool.
