the best and possibly the cheapest way to sort that is go to a scrappy and by a tailgate with the spoiler and holes drilled into it already and then sell that one on.

It should be the position where the edge of the spoiler meet the boot lid. If using tiger seal or similar, remember they ideally need 24hrs drying time so you will need to hold the spoiler in position as the adhesive dries.

there is only 1 position where the spoiler will fit correctly.

Piece of **** mate.

Fitted one to my SX. Grind the studs off the spoiler, then use tiger seal to glue it on.

I had visions if it flying off on the motorway, but it is on with just a little bit or flex in it, which is what tiger seal is meant to do.

If there proper studs they'll have two threads, so you should be able to screw them off. If there not then i dunno what Jug is on about, but having never done it i bow to his superiority.
