you will need 10mm socket set, sharp knife and some guts


taking off the old one, need to remove lining in the boot etc

pull off the circluar painted things under each edge, 10mm nuts

need to replace the sticky stuff, don't forget the nut at the back


a bit of string to help with cables

pull apart carfully as you will reuse the filling


sticky patch's take some removing, used masking tape to protect paint. left the nearside upright to save having to remove sticky patches


unscrewing the middle support to take out brake light


Remove panel to take out strut


Original compared to the carbon one, both very light


using string for cable treading


Wing on rear, sorry pocket camera, really need polarized filter

Just a quick question, can you remove the whole wing by undoing the two nuts on either edge of the boot lid and the one in the middle, and when you say requires guts what specifically are you referring too, is it the pulling apart bit? Will pulling floss across the seals not break them akin to removing a boot badge?

Do you know how to remove the centre strut from the boot lid? Is it stuck on? I cant get behind it to find any bolts! Thanks

Looking at the picture it looks like one of those plastic clips similar to how my GTS one is fitted, So very gentle levering with a plastic lever, or try and access from behind and push, Either way it requires extreme care.
