my 03 beetle has a spoiler that is now stuck up how do i get it to go down ?
it happened on a frozen day. my spoiler must have been able to open but not close now if i drive it it
makes this horrable noise
Park the car in a indoor, underground parking lot so it can heat up.
Probably stripped the gear drive when it tried to run frozen. If you can locate the wire plug for it just disconnect it until you can afford to have it fixed at the dealer, or just leave it disconnected, the spoiler really is just for looks until you are at freeway speeds then they just help with the air flow drag.
tennisshoes You are the bomb is the wire plug under the headliner?
No it is in the rear lift-gate, remove the cover and you can see the unit on the right side, just unplug the unit.
thank you. You have been so helpful. Now maybe i will not have to spend the collage fund.
tennisshoes, You are the best. How do I let people know how fab. you are. I'm not kidding, I called every place I could think of to find a way around that expensive dealer visit. By the way, it took me longer to find a screwdriver than it did to find that plug. And it works great. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Just glad I could help. Just don't forget us here at Car Gurus. Some of us have been working on cars most of our lives, so we seen a trick or two. Thanks for reply.
Thank you for the info because this same thing happened to me and we had gotten some real bad snow and freeze weather and this happened. I had told my husband to disconnect the wire to it. So now I can confirm it
