Backwards spoiler
#1
OK so I tried to flip my backwards spoiler around.

What am I missing in how to take it off the posts?

My spoiler is one of the aftermarket ones......and looks like all you have to do is undo the two bolts that hold it onto the posts and lift. Well I tried that and its on there tight......is there another screw somewhere or do I have to undo the posts and change them around also?

I believe you have to undo the post and change them as well

There may be an adhesive gasket holding it on as well. Should only have the two bolts on each pillar holding them... Once nuts are clear, may try to GENTLY tap on them and see if you can get some spacing between pillar and trunk top. If you must pry, make sure to pad painted surfaces well and do so carefully.

To take spoiler off the post My factory spoiler had 6 screws on each post attaching it to spoiler as well as the aftermarket one i purchased

Robert is correct on the wing brackets. There are three screws per plate, and one plate on each side that holds wing to pillar. One would think it would be MUCH easier to pull the whole wing assemby off, verify wing and pillar direction, and then remount.
