    I am having my rear spoiler wrapped tomorrow. They want to remove it to make the job easier and look professional.

    I understand that the spoiler is held by 4 screws and two-sided tape. Is this true?

    Thanks for any and all input.

    I'm not a body man... and I know it was a few years earlier... but... removing the rear spoiler on my 2010 Challenger R/T was a PITA!
    I can see why one might want to do it, but in reality it is a choice I wouldn't take lightly!

    RS, I see that the file is Challenger specific. Is it safe to assume that the instructions are nearly the same for the Charger SRT Hellcat?

    I am slowly working on a plan to custom fab a mounting position for the backup camera on an aftermarket T/A style rear spoiler, eventually I will change it out with that just due to personal preference and styling choices. Always liked the look of the T/A spoiler.

    A couple things.
    The Charger file showed tail lights that looked like the '11-'14 Chargers and it seems that, since the spoiler sits flat on the trunk that it would have two-sided tape.like the Challenger

    If you have to deal with two sided tape it is a PITA!

    Also, when reading the instructions, I couldn't find the trunk lid bumpers mentioned in step 2. It looks like all that holding the insulator is three push pins and the "inside" trunk closing handle (held by two screws).

    Rear spoiler removal went without a hitch. Only two small strips of two-sided tape. Now my rear spoiler is satin black vinyl to compliment the satin black hood.
