I have a genuine GTR spoiler fitted to my GTT, however due to its weight the internal boot release is unable to lift the boot clear of its catch. I have to resort to unlocking and opening the boot with a key.

The lid is much heavier to lift with the weight of the spoiler and it wants to close very easily (nearly hit my head a few times!).

Has anyone else fitted a GTR spoiler to the GTT and had this problem?

Did you fit different (perhaps GTR specific) boot struts? If so how much did they cost?

Thanks!

Are you talking about the 34gtr spoiler? If so I wouldnt have thought it should be much heavier.

Do you know if it is an original or a copy?
Yep it's a genuine Nissan R34 GT-R Spoiler, though my GTT was spoilerless from the factory so wonder if the struts were different if no spoiler was specified.

That's the same problem I have so I will take a look at the catch too, though this has only started happening since the spoiler was fitted.

My feeling is that the extra weight has pushed the possibly already worn struts to failure.
