Squeaky rear spoiler


Recommended Posts

It's squeaking when I use the switch in the foot well to raise it. Anywhere I can lube? I saw a few small hinges but I think the squeak is coming somewhere deeper inside the rear deck assmebly.

It's an '03 coupe if that matters.

Thanks,

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the reply and tips. However, I tried that and it didn't work in my case. The squeak sounds like it's coming from the middle of the spoiler (where the actual motor mechanism is, I think). The squeak is worst when it's close to fully up or fully retracted.

Thanks,

Ahsai

I found that the plastic "hinges" on mine squeaked - especially just before it reached the fully up position. Sounded horrible. Some silicone spray lube and a couple of up/down operations to work it in cured the problem.

Loose all the fixation nuts you can see on the black support plate a little ( 1 turn ) and try again, if the problem disappears means that the mechanism is twisted a bit. Do a correction where necesarely with chims or spacers.

Thanks for the tips! I raised the spoiler and losen those hex nuts, then retightened them. It helped. After I sprayed more silicon lube on those two fat "hinges", the squeak is almost all gone.

Thanks!
