    mmmmmmmm it is but its hard stuff to get off, try not to snap the spoiler. You could try to put a slim blade under it and move it along nice and slow to free the bond.

    Trim : top of the line in both

    And its likely to make a right mess of the rear door as well.

    Vehicle : insignia tourer

    Trim : elite

    Engine : 2.0 cdti 160

    Year : 2011

    i removed the spoiler ive now got on mine from a tailgate and believe me it
    takes hours,i used everything inc cheese wire but the problem youve got is
    were the top of the tailgate bends over to the rear glass as thats were the
    wire seems to get stuck and it also cuts into the tailgate

    i managed to loosen the top and some of the botton but round were the
    brakelight area is then i ended up inserting a wood saw to cut the bonding
    around that part of the spoiler,i did end up repairing some areas of the
    spoiler but after hours at it then it gave and came in 1 piece


    oh just another tip,it helps alot if the spoiler is heated up along the edges to soften it
    you can use a hair dryer or fan heater etc

    I purchased a roof spoiler off of eBay that had been removed with cheese wire .... Too me a week to sort out the Damage that it had prior to prepping and spraying
    It can be done ... But cleaning off the old sickaflex takes an age ... And the potential to get it al wrong is very high

    Thanks for all your comments.

    It's helped me make my mind up that I should steer clear of a second hand one thats already fitted to another car.

    Guess I'll have to keep my eye out on ebay for one at a reasonable price and not the extortionate amount Irmscher charge!!!
