View Full Version : Active Spoiler

When you fit an aftermarket front bumper what happens to the active spoiler, should it be removed, will it still function ok?

sorry if this is a stupid question, just thinking outloud :)

9 out of ten times it needs to be removed and will not function - taking it off is a piece of cake - after you take off the bumper you will have 4 bolts which you need to take off and unplug the motor - the active spoiler is attached to the front undertray ( not the main undertray but the smaller "nose" undertray)

Yup, unbolts from the chassis rail- apparently you need to unplug the ECU (as in the active spoiler ECU) which is behind the stereo... not got that far yet...else you'll get warning lights.

Theres a fair few threads on here about it- have a search. :)

the only warning lights I get is the active spoiler little green light,not sure what would be quicker removing the ecu or just reming the bulb behind the bottom of the dash

An easier soloution, would be to connect the yellow and the purple/yellow wire together when you disconnect the motor, then simply turn the spoiler off :)
