Default rear spoiler

How do I deactivate the spoiler? I already took out the 30A fuse number 35. Is there something else? I'm sick of the vibration. I have already lubricated it as well.

Your spoiler shouldn't even activate until you hit 93mph. Unless you have one of the newer 45mph spoiler motors that did come out late in 2002 into 2003. My spoiler never turns on. I never went over 80mph in my bug. You could disconnect the spoiler motor which should prevent the spoiler from deploying.

Thanks Tom, my spoiler does activate at 45, and from 45 to 60 it vibrates like crazy, very annoying. How do I get to the motor??

Hey, if you want to sell that spoiler motor or swap it out with one that activates at 93mph let me know. I have been looking for one that activates at 45mph.
