After the bolts are installed, these finisher plugs give the installation a neat look. The factory hatch bumpers are also replaced with these adjustable parts.
These receivers for the hatch bumpers are bolted to the top of the OEM spoiler mounts and the mounts are then retracted into the car. These mounts support a lot of the downforce the wing creates will still allowing the hatch to open like a factory part. This system can safely support hundreds of pounds of force.
Once the mounts are retracted, the plug that raises and lowers them is unplugged so the car’s ECU won’t try to raise the wing that isn’t there anymore.
The swan neck wing supports are bolted to the sides of the spoiler.
Next, the wing main element is attached to the swan neck mounts and the end plates are attached.
The rear wing is now in place, we adjusted it to the flat position for our initial setup.
