    I’m needing to take a rear corner spoiler off to use it for paint match. It’s not painted on. I loosened one on the car in the past to adjust it, but didn’t take it off.

    To remove it, is it as easy as taking the two nuts off and pulling it out/up? Is there anything else to wrestle with or that might cause me problems.

    Just loosen the two nuts and carefully remove. It may be tight if it was added later and the holes aren’t perfectly centered. On my car the drivers side spoiler piece only goes in and out easy at a specific angle. But this quarter was replaced in the cars life at some point.

    In addition to the bolts holding it, you might find some "goop" sealing it around the holes to keep water out. If the goop is there it is most likely dried hard and will have to be broken loose. The factory used a sealer similar to the duct seal sold at all the hardware stores. You can get replacement sealer at Menards, Home Depot, Lowes, or your favorite hardware store locally.
