That is probably the one I am thinking of, because it was in Brampton. I did look again and couldn't find it, so maybe he moved it from Kijiji to FB.

I installed the new spoiler assembly and it works.



I ran the extra wires necessary to use the 4 pin temperature sensor discussed above, the blue and brown wires that are on the wiring harness wires. I still have to change the sensor and make the connections at the front of the engine.
The red wire on the left will be wired into an add-on remote control to open the rear trunk lid via the electric opener that is already there.



I don't really need a remote trunk opener, but it is backup in case the normal cable breaks or binds.
I cleaned up the rust and treated the affected area with black rust inhibitor.

Got the remote control for the trunk latch actuator installed... and it works. A lot of fiddling around for what is in fact a backup to the normal cable.



The receiver is mounted on the fender wall and protected by an inline fuse. It will be hidden by the carpet.

I finished wiring up and installing the 4 pin temperature sensor and now the gauge works.



Meanwhile my oil pressure gauge (bought on Amazon) stopped working. I ordered a new one and switched the pressure sensor, that was the problem so that is working again.

I broke mine during removal, how is the repair holding up?

Works just fine. There is no tension on it once it is installed so it should last a long time.

Just before putting the car away for the winter it developed a crank no start problem (the starter turned the engine over properly, but no start) after having been driven and then turned off. Letting it sit for an hour or so made the problem go away, and it would keep running until the next time I stopped the engine. I suspected the Crank Position Sensor (CPS) so installed the CPS from a parts engine, the details are here:

The car has been out of hibernation for a week now and the problem seems to be solved.
