It's more than just some loose nuts

My 1SS spoiler nuts were loose after I took delivery of the car.

I tightened them and thought the issue was addressed.

I decided to check the spoiler nuts two weeks later and two of the four had become somewhat loose yet again!

That's when I decided to replace the factory supplied nuts with nylon locking nuts. I now have a couple weeks with the nylon locking nuts in place and they are staying tight.

The issue appears to be more of a part (nut) issue rather than assembly issue.

I would strongly suggest you either use some blue locktite or replace the factory nuts with nylon locking nuts.

Solution for those who are missing a nut:

1. Remove the two lower plastic clips holding the trunk liner on.
2. Lift the corner of the liner
3. Slide a magnetic retriever tool in towards the corner of the trunk lid.
4. You should be able to pull the nut out.

Napa sells a nice flexible magnetic retrieval tool that works great for under $6.00.

I feel much better now that I know where my missing nut is.

OK, obviously the nut size is 10 mm, so I am going to buy some nylon locknuts, what is the size of the studs? they are certainly metric. DUH

I think the 4 guys running the machine that tightens those bolts should be investigated!

Just went and checked mine, loose as a goose (however that is)

For you people that want to use nylocks, they are M6 x 1.0

Blue locktite would give you peace of mind though.

sounds like \mole nutz.

Pulled my spoiler off today for paint. There are 6 nuts. Repeat there are 6 nuts not 4. To access two of them you need to remove the liner. Mine were all finger loose too.
