Grommets/gaskets under is spolier?

Postby Nsquared97 » Thu Dec 22, 2011 7:19 pm

So I am planning to take my is spoiler off to paint it, as the paint is looking pretty shabby. Are there any gaskets/grommets underneath I would want to replace while it's off? I would prefer to order them ahead of time so I don't have to worry about water gettign in through the trunk while I wait for parts to come in.

I don't think I remember there being any. Mine was rusty when I took it off. made me kinda angry how bmw could make such a good car but falter on something as simple as a spoiler.

I assume this is for a regular 'i' lip spoiler? If so, yes, there are individual rubber washer gaskets that go on each stud and should be replaced. Bmw p/n: 51711916637 you will need 6.
