take fishing line to it. use it like a knife between the spoiler and trunk lid if it stops(gets hard to keep going) a few inches in then there are screws or plugs.

I hadn't seen that window spoiler yet. Guess I'll have to get over to my local dealership and check the 09's out. But anyway, norcalfocus01 is right, just run some fishing line or dental floss under it. Unless it extends off of the window and onto the roof I have to assume it's only be held on by tape. Heating it (carefully) with a hair dryer or heat gun will help soften the adhesive.

If you are into moding your car (and you will be soon if you hang around here long enough) I highly recommend the Motorcraft sight where for $99 bucks a year you will have access to complete body, suspension, wiring (and any other thing you can think of) diagrams and much more. Check it out HERE.

not sure about pulling if off yet, still a little afraid. I might hold onto it incase i want it back on lol, but if i am sold on going sans-spoiler it is yours.

As far as I know, it's just taped onto the window. I can't see Ford doing what VW did with their spoliers and drilling holes in the glass. Especially since this part is also an option on the base model coupes. Heat gun/blow dryer, floss and confidence should be all you need.



...and Goo Gone

I thought I heard that the new coupes with the spoilers used a different roof stamping (meaning holes). Not 100% certain, but I think that's what my dad said when the '09s started rolling off the lines (he works at Wayne Ass'y).
