Default Part behind the roof

Hi everybody,

I'm from germany so please excuse my bad english.
I own a 2012 SL and want to make a full wrap. For this I need to know how to remove the part behind the roof abive the rear window.

On this picture you can see what I mean:



It is the part behind the roof which is separated.

Has anybody an idea how to remove that. Is it bolted from inside under the roof liner?

Thanks!

Chris

i believe it's a spoiler and in 04 and 05, it also houses the 3rd brake light. Not sure how it can be removed though. i would look on the under side of the panel to see if there are any fastner. Also, you can check with Ricambi or lambostuff parts diagram which will tell you where the fastners are. Good luck!

I heard it was a giant PITA. I looked into replacing mine because it is a little warped from the heat.

I would also like to know this. I have an SL and am putting on an STS wing and engine cover and in that process am losing my third brake light. Taylor @ DP is considering swapping his with mine since his wing has a third brake light and he doesn't want two of them.

We have been told so far only that the headliner must be removed and MAYBE there are some bolts (and not glue) and then the part comes off. But none of this is confirmed. We have an interior specialist going by to look at my car and see if this can be done WITHOUT damaging or needing to replace OEM parts.

Another option I've considered is adding a third brake light into the rear bodywork,such as the center panel beneath the wing, and use someting very small like a CREE LED (or maybe something not quite so bright, but you get the idea).

I'll report back when I know more. Please do the same. If someone can describe the process to remove and replace this panel behind the roof please do so here!

Hi,

Thanks for your answers. I think we can call it spoiler. It could be that
Older models have the third brake light in there. Does anyone have a workshop manual?
Perhaps it is explained there.

Good point

I actually HAVE a manual and for some reason never looked this up. DOH!

Not sure if this is detailing the entire picture, but I'm attaching the interior chapter, focus on section W, and roof spoiler removal steps. This should be what we all need.

Now we just need someone to do it to determine if any OEM items get sacrificed along the way! Unless one of you guys do it in the next couple weeks I'll prob be up first.

LOL Too many tools. This is not the first time I've forgotten that I have this manual sitting on my drive.

@Smoky

I checked it today and you have to remove the whole roof liner, which is much work. Where did you get this manual? Is it also available in german? It would be easier for me to understand.

I purchased it on CD from somewhere here years ago. I only have the english version.

By "much work" what do you mean? Do you mean things must be damaged and replaced along the way? Or that it just takes a long time.

I checked again the manual and the car and I get crazy with this. In the manual they say that there are no preliminary steps to do for removing the spoiler. You should only loosen the 5 screws from the inside of car but there are not screws visible. Is there really no one who made this before?
