    What's the name of the rear window visor thingy that houses the rear window wiper and the 3rd brake light? Need to research how to remove it and fix some paint that it has rubbed off. Stupid snap together car.

    Spoiler? Huh. Any ideas how it comes off? Guessing some plugs in the rear hatch hiding some nuts. May just put some clear vinyl over the contact locations for a quick fix.

    Trailrunner has a brief removal write up, for a rear camera relocation. The vid above is enough to take some guess work out of it.

    Loosened the four 10mm bolts and added some 1/2 wide black trim tape (thin dbl stick, blk tape). Pic shows the paint rubbed off.

    How do you think i felt. After the 2nd trip to the grocery store, dealing with everyone else that forgot something last minute, closing the hatch and noticing paint missing. All while preparing to move back to the salt belt on 01Dec. :goingcrazy::frustrated:
