Subject: Information on Removal of Z51 Spoiler to Install High Wing Accessory Spoiler


Condition

Some customers or technicians may be concerned of damaging the rear fascia paint when applying too much heat to remove a Z51spoiler.

Cause

The cause of the condition may be that the fascia paint is unable to withstand the high heat generated by a heat gun, whenthe heat gun is used to soften the two-way tape retaining the Z51 spoiler.


Correction

To remove the Z51 rear spoiler, please use 50 lb. test monofilament fishing line (1), positioning the line between the spoilerand fascia. With a sawing motion, move the fishing line through the two-way tape and remove the spoiler. Using the fishingline method will eliminate damage to the painted fascia surface.
