We have a VW Beetle Turbo S. The electronic spoiler is stuck in the up position. When

I got mine down by spraying its gears and hinges with LIQUID WRENCH SILICONE SPRAY. You can also use L.W. White Lithium Grease.

After spraying, turn on the the key, and push the rocker switch back and forth until you hear the spoiler motor shut the spoiler closed l

    The spoiler failed in the extended (up) position, I would like it to be failed in the retracted position (I don't think it does anything anyhow). Is there a way to "manually" retract it?
