The spoiler wall is very easy to install. It just snaps on. Photos of your installation would be helpful.

is part of the old wall still in between the spoiler and the new wall. I have never fixed this spoiler and have nothing to compare it to.

You might be right, looks funny need to go look at mine since it has been a year and a half since I replaced it.

The old spoiler "wall" came off in pieces. It fit right behind the broken piece and I was a very leery of removing that piece if it was part of the wall mount. Thank you for the assistance, as taking pictures revealed this must be the issue. I really didn't like the half closed look.
Thanks again. I know why p-car took the spoiler part for replacement, as its very difficult to see anything. Thanks again. Make sure all the old parts are out before you put new ones over the top. I remember when I was about 18 I didn't take the gasket off of a canister oil filter and put one over the top of the old one. It took about 15 seconds to pump five quarts of oil out on the floor.

Can you move the spoiler when stowed down, by pushing on the rear-most edge? If so, then it's likely the motor limit micro-switch needs adjusting so it allows the motor to move a bit further and fully seat the spoiler.

You have to definitely remove all the old pieces... it clearly looks like the top part of the old wall is still in there, making the new wall too tall and leave a fold that cannot be folded correctly and it sticks out making the spoiler not close all the way.

If you remove the new spoiler wall, will the spoiler move up and down to the correct position? If not, then you have a limit switch adjustment problem. The spoiler wall should not interfere with the movement.
