Question How do you remove the spoiler from the hatch?

I need to change the brake light on the Spoiler because the light doesn't work anymore and when it does it flickers for a few seconds.

Thing is I need to remove the spoiler to replace the light. I've taken off all the bolts that hold the spoiler onto the hatch, and the thing won't budge. I'm afraid I'm gonna damage or break something. Am I missing something here?

Pre-Removal:

Liftgate lower trim.

REMOVE
  1. Rear spoiler
  2. High mounted stop light
Keep trying might have some adhesive heming you up.

I believe there is 2 bolts on each side and 1 in the middle maybe. If all those are out then just keep pulling on it. Its been a while since I have had mine off so I dont remember if there is adhesive on there or not.

So if there is some kind of adhesive holding it on, wouldn't I need an adhesive to put the spoiler back on? Or else it would leak wouldn't it?
