Step 1:

Turn on ignition to power up headunit and go to "CAR" for spoiler settings. It will show a "Spoiler" button on the headunit. Press and hold it until the spoiler is all the way up. Once spoiler is raised, open the rear engine cover with the button located on the drivers kick plate trim.

Step 2:

With the spoiler up, you can now see the "T30" screw under the spoiler that is bolted to the uprights. Remove each T30 screw (one per upright) and slide spoiler towards the front of the vehicle and up and off.

Note: For further removal of lower panels please continue on!

To Remove Rear Duct Tail and Taillights...

Step 3:

Once spoiler is raised, open the rear engine cover with the button located on the drivers kick plate trim.

Step 4:

With the engine cover open, you will need to remove the fan shroud. The oil and coolant cap with need to be unscrewed for the cover to come off as thy sit on top the cover.

Note: Only remove coolant cap if vehicle temp is cool. Otherwise you could cause a coolant eruption.

With both caps removed, the fan shroud can be popped off as it has rubber grommets it is popped onto. It is not necessary to remove the cooling fans.

Step 7:

Once the three screws are removed and brake light harness unplugged and free of the vehicle, you'll be able to gently slide the duct tail to the rear of the vehicle 1/2" and at the same time start lifting it up and over the uprights. Be cautious no to hit the painted section on the upright while lifting off.
