Spoiler Question

Hey, can anyone tell me the exact measurement between the two spoiler lifting rods? The things that make the rear spoiler go up and down... I am trying to add it to my Boxster body kit and don't want to buy it unless it fits. I appreciate it... Thanks

I meant to answer this one sooner, but didn't have a spoiler, a tape measure, and the time all together in the same place until today. 69 cm (27-3/16") center to center.

Speaking of spoilers, mine has not worked properly or not worked at all. Sometimes it goes up and stays there. I get a warning on the instrument cluster. Most of the time it doesn't go up at all. I suppose sometimes it might work properly but I don't know when it's working properly. It does throw an error code. I can manually raise or lower it with the switch on the kick panel.

So given all that, doesn't really sound like it's the spoiler mechanism itself. Could it be a relay? Any ideas?
