ID:	30249 Hi all, my first post to the forum. I’ve purchased this original rear spoiler off eBay, unfortunately it didn’t come with the fitting kit, JLR won’t sell me a kit separately unless I purchase the complete package. Does anybody know how to get hold of one of these kits or know of a way to fit it without the original fitting kit. Thanks Lee

    I don't know if that spoiler is a direct replacement for the stock spoiler, but if it is (and it looks like it could be) and you have a coupe not a 'vert then check out this post of mine over on the US forum: https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/f...4/#post1614196
    It explains the procedure for removing the rear spoiler, and replacing it is simply the same steps in reverse.
    Come to think of it I can't see why the same procedure wouldn't also work on a 'vert.

    That’s a coupe rear fixed spoiler, ragtop has a full width spoiler.

    Yep, I forgot that bit!
    Increases the odds that the procedure I linked to will work for the OP.
    And being a fixed spoiler he will need to disable the raise/lower function just like I did (which is what my post is really about anyway).

    Thanks for that link, very useful.
    I just needed to know if this direct replacement spoiler for the coupe, can it be fitted by adapting the original deployable mechanism or will I have to locate the correct fitting kit that should have been with the spoiler when I purchased it.

    I don't know what you mean by "the correct fitting kit", so the only way you can tell for now is to remove your existing spoiler and see if the new one will or won't bolt straight up.
    Maybe the new spoiler has a different bolt pattern and the "fitting kit" is an adapter plate plus maybe more/different bolts.
    Have a look at the underside of the new spoiler and see if it has the same bolt pattern as the OEM spoiler - two bolt holes at each end about 3 cm apart vertically and about 10 cm in from each end.

    did you manage to fit the fixed rear spoiler, i am in the process of swapping my R dynamic AWD for a 400 AWD coupe, and would like to change the deployable spoiler for the fixed one.

    It turns out you do need a special kit to fit the OEM fixed spoiler so ignore my blather above about this, see this post on the US forum: https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/f...0/#post2060717

    thanks for that, the write up there is very good, I have also just checked on the official Jaguar accessories site in the USA, they do list a spoiler and kit , but it is not available on the UK website, I will continue trying to find one, otherwise I will buy one in September when I am over there on vacation, and ship it back to UK. I will keep you posted here. thanks again.

    just bought and fitted one of these spoilers to my latest f Type, a 400 sport coupe AWD, not at all dificult, and in my opinion, a great improvment.
