I have searched thru probably 200 pages and I cannot or do not know how to tell what the spoiler looks like vs the deflector. Can anyone post pictures of one vs the other please. I want something but not sure what will fit my taste. It doesnt matter what color it is since painting it will not be an issue.

Thanks for reading.

great pic's

Here you got, I had it painted.


I was searching for just such pic's also, Thanks.
How did it attach? I have seen from the instructions where it says to attach, but I haven't found any point's that it refers to on the tailgate of my 2010.
Or should I completely remove the rubber guard to see them?
H and A has them on special!!! I may get one Monday.

Thanks

Gap between roof line & spoiler/deflector when installed ???

Hey, does anyone know if there is a gap between the roof and the factory rear wing or the rear air deflector on the E when installed ?

I'm thinking about installing one or the other. It all hinges on one thing though.... I have an external bike rack I hook up at times, and 2 of the bike rack straps hook up top into the body panel gap between the roof & rear hatch door. Would the straps pull down on a deflector or wing if I had one, or is there a gap for the straps to fit under on their way to their mounting spot. I have an '03....

That's what I was wondering before I got mine. There is a gap between the rear air deflector and the top of the tailgate. As soon as mine gets painted I will install and get pictures.I don't believe the rear spoiler has any gap in it at all.
The deflector has 2 places where the holes are to be drill on each side of the tailgate. Just look for them to get an idea of where the mounts are for it.

Ok, I have to ask. Are there DIFFERENT spoiler designs? What is the "thin" looking one BigTzElement has?:


Here is one of the rear spoiler.

Can I install it on an '04 EX?

That is the rear spoiler, the rear air deflector has a gap between the deflector and the top of the rear tailgate.
don't know why it wouldn't fit 04. But check H and A.

JDude,
I know there are also deflectors, but some of the spoiler pictures don't seem to jive. For instance:

Majestic "Spoiler": (looks stubby)


H&A "Spoiler": (looks thin)


Honda "Spoiler": (looks stubby)


BigTzElemen "Spoiler": (looks thin)

I think it might be the angles from pic's. I believe they are the same.

I SWEAR they are different. Majestic is $20 less for me, but I am afraid to order and get stubby instead of thin, with no option to return.

There is only two types. The older "deflector" and the newer "spoiler".

Looking at it from 2 different angles will make them look different no matter how long you look at the pictures.

I overheard someone mention a Spoiler vs. a SC Spoiler once, but i dismissed the comment. The pictures confused me enough to start wondering.
