How to remove my spoiler...

I've got a 1992 Plymouth Laser AWD; I'm in the process of stripping down and painting the car. I can not figure out how to remove the spoiler. It's got the small, low profile spoiler that contours to the body. I removed the only two bolts I could find, which are on the outside contact points. All other points where the spoiler appears to be secured have some sort of odd fastener arrangement, almost as if they are threaded from the other side or something. How can this be? Is their something obvious I'm missing? I'm getting extremely frustrated with this. Thank you.

Re: How to remove my spoiler...

Is this the 3 piece wing thats on most 1gbs? If its like the 90-91s I think there are two screws in it in the hatch jam and then it should slide back and just lift it off. Im just guessing but that is roughly how mine came off.

Re: How to remove my spoiler...

It's just a one piece spoiler, I only ever see them on Lasers. Very low profile, non-aggresive. I love the thing, I don't want to destroy it. It contacts the car in the center, and on either end.

The spoiler simply slides out of the attachments (pull the spoiler away from or towards the car). I took the same spoiler off of my laser.

Correct, it will slide out. I have my car outside with the spoiler off, I'll verify the direction. Go Laser's!

Sort of.
In NONE of my manuals does it cover that.
In NONE of my searches across several forums has this been covered (that I could find).It came in quite usefull.
I just about messed up my decklid removing mine before I started to search.
This is the ONLY thread where it was touched upon.
I just did this like 15 min ago, so it works well.

I was a bit over excited when I posted sure, but whatever.

A side note, the center can be tricky.
I pulled the left and right out easy and fought with the center before I placed a towel against the center and a few light taps with a hammer and viola it was free.Besides, this threads last update was not that long ago.
Someone else might be a "body" newb and need the help in the future.

-1 for removing the wing.
The wing is the best 1g wing
