Accord Sport Lip Spoiler Loose

Opened my trunk earlier and held it by the spoiler. Noticed it squeaked a lil bit, and then realized it's pretty bad. Is this something that I should call and tell Honda to take care of or should I just DIY it on my own? Any DIY tips if you do suggest the route?

Sounds like you have been using it to open/close your trunk. It's held on by tape, you can see if the dealer will fix it.

That's the thing. I never use the spoiler to open the trunk because when you hold down trunk open button on the key it just pops up.

I think it may have to do with my subwoofer, makin the trunk rattle and all.

There are attachment clips on the factory sport lip, possibly one or more of those is loose. It should be covered under your warranty unless you physically damaged it.

The "clips" are just locator pins. The mounting bond is the tape. Only reason it could be coming loose would be poor surface prep on install. If the dealer installed it and it's still under warranty dealer would be where I'd be headed.

According to the OP's sig they have a Sport which comes with the lip from the factory. Honda doesn't assemble cars with tape... You are thinking of the add-on lip spoiler.

I would bring it in to the dealer and see if it'll be covered by warranty, as it should be if it was installed from factory.

I thought it was only tape as well, only going from other things I have read on the forum. I guess its a lesson to "don't believe what you read on the internet." A quick diagram pull from Majestic shows 8 bolts and/or clips holding the spoiler in place on the Sport model.

OP, take off your liner carpet on the inside of you trunk lid and it should be a simple tightening of some bolts.

Did you lean on the bottom of spoiler after trunk was open? Otherwise seems contradictory sir!

But yeah if within 36k or if you have Honda Care past that, try warranty imo.
