2014 GT500 Spoiler bolts

So yesterday I closed my trunk and the left side of my spoiler pulled up. I was under the assumption that it was held down by some screws or bolts but when I looked at the back of the trunk, there was nothing in the holes. It appears that the PO had just taped it on. It is the gt500 type and the holes match up with the stock holes were. I can't seem to find screws for it though. Should I just have someone tape it back one??

Well that is entirely up to you!.....As Many Peeps that go with either Aftermarket Or some of the 3 piece Duck Tail types just go with the "Super-Heavy Duty" 3-M double sided Tape because they do NOT want to have to Drill new (Non-OEM) holes through the trunk (Quarter Panel) of their Stang. And I for 1 do NOT blame them, as who wants extra holes!....

But if your Existing OEM holes indeed match up with the Spoiler that you have, and if you are afraid of losing her, (Highway etc..) By all means throw some bolts in there for peace of mind.....But the Tape thats out there now (3M, and Gorilla Auto Tape) are basically all that you need......Unless that is, if you have some MAJOR temp. changes, i.e. bringing her out from a heated Garage to 0'F outside type of weather!.........But unless you are living on top of the "Sierra" Mountains with Sasquatch! I don't think that Gorgeous Cali. weather is going to freeze up and thaw any quality Auto "Body Panel Tape"

Sean.

Hmm.. Yah the holes line up so I wonder why it's not bolted down

maybe stripped out the screw holes when being applied? or just lazy p.o? in my experience they use 6x20 cap screw. like the license plate type with the phillips head. you can get at autozone cheap. i wouldnt just tape,especially if holes are there already.

So I went to pepboys and the guy helped me find screws that would fit. But not after dropping some in the holes in the trunk. Now I always hear them rolling around in there! I'll have to take it off and pull them out somehow

Is it a true GT500 spoiler or the 3D Carbon brand spoiler that American Muscle sells? An easy way to tell is if the Gurney flap is a separate piece (real GT500 spoiler) or molded into the spoiler (like the 3D Carbon spoiler). If it turns out it is the 3D Carbon spoiler, the chances are the bolts were left out because they didn't exactly line up perfectly. I've experienced and know of a couple of other Mustang owners that have too. I had to widen the holes a touch on my deck-lid because of this. They looked right but were barely off (maybe just the angle was off and caused interference).


ETA:
I really like the (knock-off) GT500 spoiler on my car!

I apologize, but that is funny.. (maybe because its not me...) On the positive side, you think about Pep Boys every time you tap the brakes...


Go back and buy a magnet - most auto parts stores sell one that is on the end of a telescoping rod - like old-fashioned walkie-talkie antenna's. They are cheap, and handy to have anyway. That should help you get the bolts out.

I'll have a set of Flowmaster Outlaws for sale in the spring, you'll never hear the bolts (or anything else) ever again......

The guy at the store tried magnets but it's really hard to get them through the holes and past the filler in the trunk. Now everytime I hear them I remember why I never let other people work on my cars x)

Hmmm. That's enticing. I have been wanting some new exhaust...
