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.
