Non-functioning spoiler

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I recently posted a topic about my rear spoiler not working. I have reposted this topic as it is unresolved. I have attached a pic of the malfunctioning spoiler piston, view is from the bottom looking up at what should be a blind-end. Some type of spring loaded wire is hanging out. I have also attached a pic of the normal, functioning side.

Any thoughts...?

Thanks

I've never experienced this myself, so sorry I can't be much of a help other than to say you'll probably have to dismantle the spoiler to repair it.

Some of the individual parts for the driving mechanism are not listed in the parts catalog, and Porsche wants you to replace the entire driving mechanism instead of just the bits an pieces (either because they cannot be replaced individually or that they simply don't sell them individually).

Trouble is, Porsche wants over $1000 for it.

You can find one used at a dismantler like dc auto for $425.

Sometimes you can find some of the parts (or complete spoilers) available from other Porsche owners:
