Default 2013 Rear Wing/Spoiler

Hi all,

I am interested in adding a wing/spoiler to the back of my Sorento. I'm talking about the piece above the back window that comes stock on the SX.

Any ideas on the best place to get one? Is this a DIY install, or should I go to a shop?

Thanks!

it can be a DIY if you want. The instructions are pretty good. I got mine from carid.com
Color matched (it was spot on). I need to install it I am just waiting for my buddy to get some free time as I need an extra set of hands to make sure it lines up perfect.

Are the ones from Carid stick on or do they require drilling into the tailgate? I'm looking to get this done too.

Strange...my EX came with that. (I'm not really a big fan, but I'm too lazy to explore the options of removing it)

From what I understand, they are mounted with screws, so it would require drilling for those of us that didn't get one stock. That being said, I will probably get quotes for an auto shop to install mine... the idea of drilling into the body/paint makes me a little nervous.

It does require drilling but they make it pretty simple to do. there are video's on carid as well so you can see the process.

I could have sworn someone on here bought an aftermarket one that stuck with 3M adhesive or something like that. Maybe I'm wrong.

If you can find the post and link it here, that would be great. So far, the only ones I have found require drilling.

I called my local shop to get a quote and they said anywhere from $75-$125 depending on the complexity. I'm hoping for the $75 range since this comes with the everything needed to install.

The thread in question that the guy used 3m tape was basically the same as the carid one he just opted to use only double sided tape instead of using the screws that come with it.

I would not trust this method although he claims it works with out issue.

The ones from car id come with posts you put in the spoiler.... so in theory double sided tape would work if you trust the bond
