Rear Spoiler-Remove/replace?

My new Bentley Prius Repair and Maintenance manual for 2004-2008 has no information for my first project--replacing the cracked rear spoiler on my 2004 Prius(the spoiler that's attached to the hatch/5th door). I'm going to go to a junkyard and detach an undamaged spoiler from a similar model and use it to replace the cracked one on my Prius. I need to know 1) where the fasteners are that attach the spoiler to the hatch, 2) the best way to detach to spoiler without damaging anything else on the car, and 3) a diagram, if one is available. Thanks

Hello,
-Remove rear wiper arm
-Remove rear hatch interior trim panels

-Remove spoiler sub-assembly
-Put protective tape under rear of spoiler
-Remove 4 fasteners from bottom side, (interior) of hatch
-Using a screwdriver (cover tip of screwdriver with tape), disengage the 3 clips and remove the rear spoiler.

See attached image for fastener locations. HTH
