    2016 Cayman ducktail install

    What tool do I need to remove the stock rear wing so I can install the new ducktail wing I just bought? I thought it would take an Allen wrench but it appears from the required odd viewing angle that the bolt head merely has a round cavity in which to insert something. There also isn’t much room to fit a tool in there.

    Found a video and discovered I was looking at the wrong location. There are a series of phillips head screws at the leading edge of the stock wing to remove it. I found this ABS plastic ducktail on eBay for under $300, it was shipped free, is black, and can be painted to match the car.

    What are you going to do to stop it from raising up all the way and creating an air break? I read a few areas where people talked about tricking that part of the car to think it was a boxster so it stopped at the right angle. I talked to my service tech at porsche and he told me we could do this but he thought that we may loose the rear hatch as a result.
