sorry for the delay............thunder storms & no internet..
clips are removed by "carefully" prying up with panel tool or equal.........I posted "complete" procedures on how to get the Spoiler off as you requested......I do not believe in "short cuts" & that would be up to you to go that routeIF the 3rd Brake Light does not work "only" when the Liftgate is closed, that would tell me there is an issue with wiring, connection or Liftgate Switch
1) I have no control over advertisements, as all I do is Answer Questions & I am NOT an Employee2) IF you were able to find the info I posted, why did you not do that & let me know that you had that info, as I would have let someone else respond.3) There was NO "attitude".....you wanted to "short cut", I advised against itWhat you received was exactly what you asked for:"I'm trying to troubleshoot, but I'm not sure how to get the spoiler off. Can you help? "
If the section on removing trim had also included information on removing dashboard trim or the front grille, would have told me that I needed to remove that also to avoid "shortcutting" the procedure?
That is an absurd response & sorry you have the wherewithall to even question my posting of Factory procedures
We know "nothing" of your mechanical or electronics background.I provided Factory procedures & perhaps it may have been a little much.Hope you got it done & you have located the issue
