On my Astra mk2 1.3 Merit I wish to fit a GTE spoiler. On the GTE the wiper is in the rear window on my model it is on the boot lid. Can I fit it or do I need a GTE tailgate?

Cheers guys

GTE hatch, if there was ever a gte spoiler to fit a normal hatch it would have to have that grey piece removed that almost touches the glass. Ffter this mod it wouldnt look like a gte spoiler anymore and would have a big hole on the leading edge.

I did this on my merit :) You will need to remove the wiper arm and motor and fill the hole. On the inside of the tailgate you will see the marks for the holes at the sides are already there, so drill in those places, and measure for the centre ones, and drill there also. It's then a case of popping it on. If you dont remove the wiper it just wont go on at all.


You could always use a rubber grommet to blank off the hole left by the wiper

Hope this helps

Oddball, the spoiler pretty much fits straight on matey, the grey bit sits exactly the same on the merit as it does on the GTE

I prefer GTE's without the spoilers I think - What about you?

Yeah, mine's went straight on m8, mine was a mk2 1.4L originally, but it's been converted to a 2lte 16v spec. The spoiler bolts on fine, but don't forget the sealant around the edges though eh?(waterproofing) ;)

Why dont you just it as it is and maybe go for something different like a roof top spoiler - the wrap round sort?? Just a thought mate! :D
