just get a good grip and pull up , there is a plastic stud that's made onto the wing, it clips into plastic grommet type clip,all you need to do is just give it a firm tug,

MMMMM scummy. I bet my bottom dollar the 70 year old man never took his wing off before I bought it from him.

bumping an old thread, removed the wing but how do you take the plastic clip off the car? It wont come out by pulling up on it and the yellow plastic is sitting on foam which looks to be glued to the trunk =[

Pop the white stud thing out the yellow grommet first,then use something flat to work it out of the hole, it's not that difficult.

its as if its larger inside the hole so you cant pull it out, but rather force it downwards to come out, but there's no hole inside the trunk to retrieve it easily. i don't think I'll ever need this thing again anyway.

My yellow tabs came out and was still attached to the wing. I would push it threw and grab it from the other side if it was stuck.

^ but when i open my trunk and look to see where the 4 bolts are, its covered by metal, i cant even see it to push up on it.


Editing : took pliers to it and pulled up/wiggled a big, ended up breaking the white tab in half. great.

Yes, it's slightly bigger on the part that's inside, but only on two sides,not all the way around, like I said before,pop the white stud out and you can manage to pop out the yellow grommet with pry tool, flathead,butter knife,scraper,e.t.c.

I rolled around with color matched vinyl on the holes for a while. Worked great.
