I need to pull my rear spoiler - I'm installing a new check valve for the leaking rear washer - before anyone chimes in to take it to the dealer for warranty, I have - 4 times. They can't fix it and actually told me mine leaks less than new cars on their lot. I've decided to pull the spoiler off and install a new check valve myself (It's cheap - ~$18US) and to also see what hackery they might have done on their 4 failed attempts.
From what I am seeing in the VW shop manual in the body exterior section, I will need to remove the inside hatch trim piece, remove 3 nuts and then from the outside, lift the spoiler upwards to remove it. The side post-it note spoilers remain in place. I was hoping someone had done this already and could add any suggestions/tips on the process..?
