If it's like my 2001 look at the corner of the hatch when you lift it up and you'll see two small round black plugs. They cover up holes that allow access to the bolts that go through the hatch into the ends of the spoiler. New spoilers have a template that attaches to the outside of the hatch and shows where the holes are to be drilled.

Don't know what to say except that you might have to take a trip to the body shop too, like ucantcme. Do you have the nuts and bolts that attach the spoiler to the hatch? If so, you can always get someone to help while you measure, fit and drill the holes yourself.

Use the old saying: measure twice, cut (drill) once.

Take it to a body shop. They have the expertise and equipment, if something goes wrong, its their problem.

Thumbs up Re: PT cruiser Hatch spoiler install help needed

Just mounted an aftermarket spolier on the 2006 soonercruiser. Son and me (a rookie to this myself) did it ourselves. The critical part is.... did the spoiler come with the mounting bolts?
-Then it's just a matter of creating a template to carefully place the spoiler, look at it from several vantage points, and drill the holes in the correct place. What you want is...something that you can stick into the mounting holes in the spoiler, then that item/template is left behind as you lift the spoiler off....indicating exactly where to drill the holes. Be sure round/soften the hole edges and paint the hole edges with an enamel paint to reduce the chance of rust.
-Oh! And be sure the under surface of the mounting of the spoiler has a gasket to further prevent leaks thru the mounting holes into the hatch.
**Mine was even more difficult, since I custom molded-in an LED light into the spolier, and we had to run the wire to the 3rd brake light.
(thanks again Carey)

I had a spoiler installed on my 2002, the problem I noticed later was that the wiring on the drivers side, the rubber sleeve wore thru. Didn't bother the cables tho, as I taped the rub spot with black electricians tape.
