If it doesn't have plugs after following the wires from the wing to inside the boot, then the next option would be to chop at a desirable length. Though i don't have a spoiler but that is how i see it. Hope this helps.

EDIT: You can chop it yourself. With cutters.

i did the same thing to my ba, i took the spoiler off, but the holes are f**k and rusted cause the guy before me liked to park next time bore water sprinklers.

it'll look hot as man, make sure you post some pics up when you take it off :)

hard to say it could be in the bootlid or the section under the parcel shelf, or may not have one dependng whether it was factory or what not.

I know a friends sister with a lancer that the wires are literally twisted together, and the positive has a bit of electrical tape over it. So spoiler wiring comes in all forms, best to just get your arm up in their, and feel around, unless someone pipes up where it is factory on your model, and watch for sparks. :lol: :lol:
