Has anyone ever DIY'd this part? Don't really want to pay the dealer to do it, but don't want to mess it up either. Yes I know ... grab the drill and lose my inhibitions Grin

I know someone that was on Edmunds a year or two ago had done this and didn't think it was difficult. IIRC, the kit came w/a template for your drill holes. You'll want some touch-up paint to keep rust out, but you know that part.

Do you want me to dig up a schematic for it?

I say go for it.. then report back. Then I'll decide if I want to DIY for my next van, lol!

I should be receiving it today. Hopefully I'll install it before this weekend.

I ordered one from mazdastuff two months ago but still in the box. I am hesitant to do it. One member (Jay Wang) mentioned few months back that its not that hard to install but the thought of drilling holes in the new van is. Let us know how easy/hard it is to install.

Fly me down... I'll bring my Makita and won't feel bad about drilling holes...in *your* van! Smile

I hear it's an easy install too, once you get past putting holes in your beloved van.

Beach, did it arrive yet! I'm on the edge of my seat!

Beach,

I called Mazdastuff.com and they don't have a shimmering sand color. What color is yours? Does it come with installation hardware?

Dennis,

Well, mine hasn't arrived yet Angry but it's the Light Teal color. Interesting ... I just went to their website and went under 2002 MPV Accessories, but no rear spoiler is listed for '02. Yet, it is listed under 2001 Accessories. I assuming you noticed this and have an '02 so that's why you called them directly, right? I wonder if Sand Mica, an '01 color, is the same as Shimmering Sand?

Beach,

According to the guy Sand Mica is NOT exactly the same as the Shimmering Sand. He promised me to search for this one, dealer-wide, and will let me know in a week. Spoilerdepot is also on backorder and will be available in 20 or so days cost $239 painted.

Wow! That's too bad they hit you up for $74 just to paint the spoiler. Maybe you could wait a few months after the '03s are released and see if Mazdastuff.com will have the '02 spoiler then. Good luck in your search.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the two (sand mica and shimmering sand) are the same color. Mazda uses '4F' for the paint codes for both colors. Consult your dealer however, before believing me. Smile

Java

Shimmering Sand's paint code is 24E and there is a very slight difference in color shade per the guy in Mazdastuff.com

Thanks dp for letting me know. My database says 4F, but I need to re-verify the source (maybe just a typo?), and also have Alex change the listing on this website (it says 4F also). FWIW, the dw likes the sand color and I think it's on the list for the next van as the #1 color choice for us.

Well, it finally arrived! It was nicely packed in the oem box - with the obligatory Roger Beasley Mazda can-coozie of course. It should be a fairly easy install, but will require some precision drilling. 4 holes to be exact - two on each end. The instructions seem clear and a template is provided. I'm not sure what a Michigan Drill bit is and a 3/4" one is required (or equivalent). It looks like a hole saw bit for metal. Other tools of note are:

1/8" & 11/32" metal bits
ratchet w/8mm socket
torque wrench w/8mm socket (2 bolts to 30 inch lbs.)
hammer & center punch
deburring tool
zinc primer
magnet to help catch metal shavings

Unfortunately, I won't be able to install it this weekend ... I forgot about the pallet of sod that was delivered to my house this morning Cry
