    I've removed the big/center piece of 3-piece spoiler from the trunk.

    Now, how do I remove the left/right pieces safely?
    The RH one already has crack when I got the car, I don't want to end up destoying it myself :p

    You have to unscrew 3 long bolts at their inner side (from the trunk), and there is a ball-joint thing at the front end (not sure if this is the correct phrase). You have to pop that out carefully.

    Thanks for the quick reply. :D

    I tried unscrewing the 3 bolts, I have two (one on each side) with worn out heads :(

    Finally got them screws out, with the help of WD40 and a lot of patience.. ;)

    I take it your car is a coupe? If this is true, I have several of the left and right end plates for the coupe.

    Thanks racerb, but my car is a hatchback. The RH plate came out in two pieces, I think I just have to glue them together. :(

    BTW, how do we remove the backdoor glass lower moulding? I'm going to de-rust the trunk lid particularly around the rear wiper mounting hole.

    Let me look some more, I did have some hatch rear spoiler pieces. I still have an '88 hatch with spoiler I haven't stripped yet, it would be available some time later.

    To remove that trim piece, use a very flat putty knife and carefully pry straight up, there are several plastic clips holding it in place and will break easily. Might want to check with your local Toyota dealer about replacement clips, before removing the trim, so you'll have something to install it later.

    Looked through all my spoiler parts, and they were all for coupes. So I removed the one from the '88 parts car and have it here if you want it.

    Here are a few pics of the right rear spoiler piece, all you would need is the plastic insert for the pin at front end.

    From what I see on USPS, to ship to California would cost $18, not sure about cost to Philippines?

    How about some additional parts? Do you have the window master control switch(driver side) and the relay module(85914-14020) for the power antenna?

    If so, how much shipped to CA for those, including the RH spoiler? Thanks! :)

    Let me check on those other 2 items, pretty sure I have the switch, just not sure about the antenna module. I'll go through might storage barn this evening and let you know.

    If everything will fit in this one box, then the shipping will be the same, would just have to put a cost to these items, I'm thinking around $50 for everything plus shipping....

    racerb :cool:
