Thumbs down Loose spoiler 2SS

Watch out folks. There are 2 bolts on each side holding down the spoiler. The 2 on the left both were missing the nuts. They are in the trunk lid. Had to remove 1 and switch sides till I can take it in for them to look at. JEES.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll check mine right now. Someone in another thread rented a CGM 2SS and said the left side of the spoiler was flapping... Probably the same problem.

Did you get the stripes?

I know I had to take my truck liner out and tighten mine. The one had fallen off and was rattling in the trunk lid!

If you've had stripes installed I'd say go back over them when you take delivery.

Things like this happen. It sucks but production with humans isnt perfect although we try our best. QC is suppose to catch everything but they dont. imagine a guy building a car while having troubles at home and trying to keep that stuff at home but its hard.

Or maybe it is management telling him to use that gun that isn't torquing properly and "hurry up, it'll be fine, ship it"

It did not come with stripes. No one has touched the car. It came loose from bad quality. Simple enough

My car does the same. When I open the trunk I hear something inside rattling. Now I know what it is. This makes three annoying issues with my car. The other two are the passenger side A pillar trim popping out and the weatherstripping on the driver's side is visible from the outside of the car when the door is closed. The weatherstripping gets tucked under the bottom of the door sill.

Hey just wondering if you heard a nut rattling in the trunk itself. I just heard today something rattling around in there. I have no idea what it is. So on top of that I have a paint issue with the bumper. I am really getting frustrated.

Hmm, 82RS2010SS is from oshawa, and mentions overtorqued fasteners for the rear spoiler and managers that say just ship it!

Is that why some of us waited so long in QC hold?,

I found some plastic covering still stuck to the bottom side of the spoiler (between spoiler and trunk lid) just after purchase. I removed the plastic bolt covers and found the 4 spoiler nuts to be loose. I figured that might have been from the stripe kit installation. I tightened the four nuts.

I decided to recheck them today. I found the nuts were not loose like before, but they certainly were not as tight as I had them just a couple of weeks ago.

I purchased four 6MMx1.0 nylon locking nuts and installed them using flat washers to make the surface area similar to the original nuts used for the spoiler.

Just discovered my issue. Drivers side nut is completely off now. Rattled loose during a long trip this weekend apparently. Now the nut and washers are rolling around in the trunk lid. Are the rubber bolt covers hard to remove? What did you use to keep from scratching the paint?

When I had my stripes installed today the guy putting them on said they were loose. But just noticed the SS emblem on trunk was loose and my dealer ordered me another one. They said they couldn't get it tostick better. Don't know if it had been loose or possibly something happened while installing stripes? Just noticed it today. But just wanted to give everyone heads up in case it wasn't a accident. Love the stripes though!!!

Can we get an Oshawa insider to let us know if this problem has been corrected?

Improper torque is causing mass failure of the spoiler retention system, and is causing annoying rattles in the trunk lid as well.

Don't wait until one of these spoilers go flying off at highway speeds like the delaminated C6 roofs did.

I was able to pull them off pretty easy with my fingers so I didn't have to worry about scratching the paint. I put some silicone on the thread when putting the nuts back on.
