Default front lower spoiler question

Ok....so another forum member told me i should put the lower front spoiler back on--after the rivets busted-- for proper engine cooling. I went to do this and think that the owner before me drilled out holes in the plastic lower shroud because the rivets don`t fit in the holes...and they look like they are drilled...and there are no springs anywhere...but, the spoiler has 4 holes and they all line up. I`m freekin losin` me mind captain...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

When the springs on my air dam broke I replaced them with plastic wire ties(long ones). That was about 5 years ago and it hasn't fallen off yet, knock on wood.

It's been a long time since that stupid air dam has stayed on one of my S-Series. Never had a cooling issue, except when I bought a SC2 that had a mechanic stumped with a leaking coolant cap.

Leave it off and have one less thing to worry about on high curbs.

The only time you will notice it is gone is when you get stuck in a major traffic jam in August. Then the FAN will end up running. Other than that a trip to a couple of taverns and it will be gone anyway. Don't have one, don't want one, don't miss it. And, don't overheat.
