Hi all - just noticed that all of the sudden my rear spoiler when fully down is no longer sitting completely flush. It’s most noticeable right at the point where it meets the fender and tail light (see pic below). Has anyone else experienced that or know how to fix it?

Thanks but is there a reason that the spoiler, which was previously flush, would all of the sudden not sit fully flush again?

Now that, right there, is a great question.

Mine was slightly out of alignment when I got it so the detail in that link helped me, but I can't see any reason why / how that would shift over time unless there is something else at play...

I would raise the spoiler and look for obstructions in what you can see of the mechanism. When I was installing my duck tail, I dropped a small bolt into the abyss and spent much time looking for it. It wasn't obstructing anything, but you can see much of the mechanism with a strong light source looking into the holes.

Thanks I’m going to try that today. In my situation it appears that the spoiler is simply not going all the way down and it’s not a matter of just minor tweaks for some uneven gaps.

Now I am second guessing whether my spoiler has always been like this and I just never noticed. Can anyone do me a favor and take some pics of how their spoiler sits where it meets the tail lights?
