Open the trunk, on the underside of the trunklid under the spoiler pillar columns, there are (1) 10 mm bolt that secures each pillar column to the trunklid. Remove each 10 mm bolt ( 1 each Pillar Column ). Next, the ends of the spoiler are held down by (2) each, embedded studs within the spoiler. these studs pop into plastic sleeves which are secured into holes in the trunklid. Carefully apply verticle pressure on the end of the spoiler to lift (pop out) the studs from the securing stud holes. If you cannot get them to pop out, try using something to wedge between the underside of the end spoiler and the trunk body. Be careful to use a cloth under the pry object as to not damage the body of the trunk. I used a wide flat screwdriver with a piece of rubber under it. Pry location is in ( MIDDLE) of the end spoiler pillars. Both studs are located in the center of the end spoiler pillars.! Good luck.

Glad I could be of help! Hopefully, you can do this without too much trouble....probably won't cost much to have a shop do it though.
