Havoc spoiler

So I installed a havoc spoiler two years ago !!! The body shop bolted it down to the stock holes !! No I come to find my battery submerged in water two weeks ago and I thought I pinched some weather stripping but I played around with it and it was fine !! So it had rained a little bit the past two days and now there is some water in the trunk again but the paneling on the trunk lid is wet !! There was also a small puddle of water on the ledge on the other of the weather striping inside the trunk !! The only thing that I could think is that the water is coming in from the trunk lid !! Has anyone experienced this when the change out the stock lip spoiler !! Thanks

You might want to take the spoiler off and check the spoiler pin locating hole. The stock spoiler has a locating pin that pops tightly into the center hold on the trunk lid. Most spoilers don't have this pin leaving an open hole for water to get it. You could just spread a little silicone over it to seal it up. That is what I did with my spoiler and I've never had a problem.

I installed my own Havoc rear spoiler. When i took off the oem spoiler and when installing the Havoc i put a little bit of silicone around the bolt holes to seal it so water doesn't get into trunk. I go thru car washes and my car sits out in the rain (when it rains) i've had no water damage or leaking.

Also you can rub some Vaseline on the weather stripping to keep it soft and sealing properly. I used to do this on my 96' 300 ZX that had t-tops.
