    Question HOW TO???? Remove front lip to install spoiler/splitter?

    Hey guys,

    So I got a splitter/spoiler/lip that I want to install and it ain't clear to remove the factory one (to install the new one).

    Have not even found anything on YouTube dealing with Gen 2.

    So, HOW DO I DO IT?

    Thanks! Juan

    What kind of lip is it? You can contact the manufacturer and they can guide you in the right direction. All Maxton design lips fit right under the stock lip.

    I need to remove the factory one.

    I've been told that you use an interior trim removal tool to "snap off" from the bumper. Before I damage something........... i rather ask

    Yes a interior trim removal tool will help. You can remove the belly pan to get access to the tabs from the back.
    With the bumper off it is a lot easier to work it.

    Hard to believe with the speeds this thing is capable of. I guess they are not that effective then.

    You will see how hard they are to remove with the press fit tabs.
