Spoiler squeaking

Hey guys I found that my Spoiler on my viggen is causing this rather annoying squeak as I drive. Does it just need to be tightened or is something else on the spoiler causing this annoyance? Oh and yes I did check to see if it was the bushings in the rear they are not the problem.

You can get pretty much the same effect as that Saab kit by buying a roll of 3M 1/8" trim tape and replacing the tape on the bottom of your spoiler. The side clips should be able to be bent back into shape. They're not the sturdiest things, but they do the job.

Hey sorry for not getting back. Took a trip over the weekend. Um, I haven't gotten into the repair yet, but I can tell you that its coming from dead center. The sides do have some play with them but not as much as i would assume if the clips were broken. Alas from what I have read sounds like I will have to add a bit of work to the to-do list. Thanks for the info and the diagram guys!

There's nothing that holds down the spoiler in the middle, except for tape. Unlike the regular spoiler, which has three nuts that hold it down, the Viggen spoiler only uses the outer two holes.
