I took my spoiler off when I put my stripes on. It was really easy, even for a n00b. You just need to take the plastic fasteners off of the lining on the inside of the decklid. This will expose 5 or 6 access holes to the nuts that hold the spoiler on. After you take the nuts off the spoiler there is a little safety tab that will prevent the spoiler from coming off. you just squeeze that together and it lifts right off. This was from memory so I might have forgotten a step but it's really easy.

I didn't take it completely out, just removed enough of the plastic tabs to be able to fold it back enough to get access to the holes leading to the nuts. Those plastic tabs can be a little tricky to get out. I think there might be a special tool for it or something. I used a needle nose pliers. That was probably the most frustrating part.

I was also amazed at how loose the nuts were from the factory, although that has been talked about a lot elsewhere.

If you don't have a tool, a kitchen fork works fine. Just slide the tines under the head of the tab and pry, they'll pop right out.
There are 6 spoiler nuts, 4 exposed and 2 under the trunk liner.
