Unless the bolts are exposed under the weather stripping (rubber seals) I can't imagine how to do it. Anyone know?

..the wing moves with the hatch. It is attached to the hatch, mid way up.

Look closer and you'll see some black tape covering the holes. This tape is half covered by the rubber seal. If you press on the tape you can feel the holes - where you'll find the mounting bolts. :blink:

Eh? Why is everyone getting rid of one of the nicest styling features on an S4? ;)

Mine had one fitted in a previous incarnation. You can STILL see where it went and the damage done to expose the bolts/hacksaw them off (they will certainly be rusted solid by now) and the filled holes as the putty shrinks. All this despite hundreds spent by the previous owner on paint etc. I am considering reitting it just to cover it all up.

In the garage no-one can hear you scream
