  1. For sake of completeness I can advise on spoiler removal for 2003 Boxster S. No rivets used (as is already known). Proceed as follows: 1: Raise spoiler manually using footwell switch 2: Spolier has two plastic 'end-caps' inserted into the steel part, remove these caps using small screw driver or fingers. 3: Look down the length of the spolier through the gap created by the end-cap removal and you will see the two plastic pegs (one near each end) which retain the Painted part onto the steel part. 4. insert a long thin flat blade screwdriver into the steel part and gently lever the peg back whilst gently lifting the plastic part upwards - disengaging the peg, repeat for the oppsite end. 5. The plastic part can now be removed slightly upwards and rearwards, sliding off the plastic lugs at bottom/rear of the plastic part 6. Use suitable Allen key to remove the steel part from the steel supporting pillars (can be quite tight as they are 'thread-locked' in place). When re-assembling pay particular attention to engaging all the lugs at the bottom/rear of the plastic part before snapping the pegs back down into place. The above method removes the possiblity of breaking the plastic locating pegs on removal by the 'rip it out' method!

  3. The idea of adding a strut brace is not to tune the suspension but to allow it to work better by taking the flex out of the body. Just look inside almost any race car to see how much importance is put on stiffening the shell .
