Installing a 944 spoiler on a 924...

I've recently bought a nice 944 spoiler on ebay and thought i would add it on to my 924 (I was told this was possible). My car does not currently have a spoiler.

It appears that I must drill through the black metal trim - without hitting the glass. Then insert the bolts (which I don't have) and voila!

Has anyone tried this before?

Thanks!

A guy who works with me says he bought a 924 back glass to fit on his 944 and had to have holes drilled in the glass to fit the spoiler. Here no glass fitment centres will gaurantee their work against cracking the glass so you have to take that risk.

1) Make sure that you have full glass coverage on your car.

2) Drill without hitting the glass.

3) After you hit the glass, call the insurance company.

4) Take the check from the insurance company, after they tell you that the car is totalled, since the cost of the hatch is more than the value of the car.

5) Add some money and buy a 944.

6) Voila, a 944 spoiler on your car!

Early 924? See www.924.org

Sell the spoiler and buy the entire hatch, much simpler!

Me and Eresener were wondering this as I have a 924S and we have acess to a totaled 944 parts car.My 924S has the small 924 spoiler and we figured it would fit. I am not too sure about the alignment of the screw holes though. The 944 parts car is an 83 or 84 and My 924S is an 87. I wasn't even sure where the screws were since underneath the hatch all I saw were thread-ends of the screws...

I have a 84 944 hatch on my 924S. No issues installing. Just swap hatches.

I would swap the hatches but my car has the windows tinted and our parts car doesn't. Plus I'm sure the owner would want to keep the actual hatch. What I was wondering if the old small 924S spoiler could be detatched and a 944 spoiler put on using the same screw holes.

It should bolt right up on a 924S. The early 924 needs the drilling.
