I'm Getting Ripped...aerokit Electrical Wiring

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

Tell me if this sounds right to you. I was happy to get my Boxster Aerokit I for my 2000 Boxster S recently, and after asking around, I got quotes anywhere from $575-4000 for paint and installation. I knew $575 was REALLY cheap, but I showed them the instructions and they promised Porsche paint and installation. I went for it, then when they recieved the kit, they jacked up the price because they didn't know they had to paint a new rear deck (trunk). It went to $1175...okay I said....grumble grumble.... But today, after all is said and done, they now have the audacity to tell me that they're not disconnecting the automated rear spoiler, and not wiring the rear spoiler light, becuase they don't want to mess with the electrical wiring and it seems too complicated! He thinks it's fair to charge me the full price of the job he quoted, and then wants to send me to an electrician to get the light wired and auto spoiler deactivated, and pay that extra out of my pocket :angry: It seems to me that they accepted a job, started on it, then midway through, decided he was way over his head. Anyways, I'm taking this guy to small claims court (filing that paperwork tommorow). But here's the question I need to know: Does anyone know how to turn off the automatic spoiler and more importantly, wire the rear spoiler (i hear a relay is required)? Thanks in advance, I love this forum.

You need to review the install instructions. The spoiler is removed and the plug to the motor is disconnected. A black plastic trim plate in the kit covers the hole - you can see the plate has been removed in this picture. Then the bulb in the instrument cluster for the spoiler warning light is removed.
