Abarth rear spoiler fitment

I've just bought a good used rear spoiler which came with screws for the five holes with locating dowels but there are also another six holes which look like they take screws,are these extra holes also used as well? Cheers.

Re: Abarth rear spoiler fitment

There are only 5 mountings. Other holes are part of the manufacturing/moulding process. (soft rubber over a firmer carrier block.

FYI: (P/Ns)

5944716 = Spoiler
15644401 = Bolt/Screw (x5)
4458626 = Spacer/Bush (x5)
12638105 = Washer (x5)

Cheers for that,luckily it came with all the necessary screws and washers so only a matter of some careful measuring and drilling.

Re: Abarth rear spoiler fitment

Wish you well with the drilling.

I would advise that Strada tailgates are well known for corrosion. All starts at the window rubber lower corners. The mid sections (spoiler area) have been either fine or rot sections. The lower tailgate vertical flange is also a rust trap/issue but this is generally dictated by the window and spoiler water ingress/access points.

When you have drilled the holes do:

o clean and rust primer treat the holes
o top coat the holes
o waxoil / similar treat the holes before fitting the spoiler
o fit spoiler
o waxoil / similar treat all areas after fitting the spoiler

Think it is RACING RED 854

Being in the car painting trade you can mix up a small sample to check.
