Use dental floss or fishing line. Run it up and down like a saw underneatn the emdlem or molding. Once you get it odd use goof off or even WD-40 to remove the adhesive *sp* Then put a little wax on. Depending on how long they have been on you might see a "ghost" emblem. This will go away with time and cleaning.

you might try heating the emblem up lightly with a heat gun or torch first, then use fishing line. Dental floss tends to brake alot.

yea ive used a hair dryer to loosen up the tape or glue underneath then it usually just pops off... i used a flat head screwdriver wrapped in a cloth to avoid scratching the paint... its better then fishing line cause you can muscle it more with a tool then a thin string...

Emblems are tough you really can't get the adhesive hot enough behind them so you basically have to saw at the adhesive with the fishing line. Dental floss will not work. I was breaking fishing line on this stuff, so dental floss is a no go. Just saw at it carefully until you get the emblem off and then use an adhesive remover and a microfiber pad to get most of whatsleft off. If you can get your hands on a product called Graphix Gone Adhesive Remover this product works better than 3M and smells a ton better too, but I think you have to order it online.

I removed my badges yesterday, and I used a 2 inch plastic scraper that I got at pep boys. this is the 3rd time i've removed badges from a car, and the first time I used the fishing line and had excess adhesive left over.

with the plastic scraper, the majority of the glue is removed, and all you really gotta do is use some elbow grease with some goo gone to remove the rest.

Yeah the plastic scraper idea is a good one. Don't you need to get the emblem off first though to scrape the adhesive.

i wouldnt trust anything with the word "scraper" in the name against paint... it sounds like it could only end in disaster...

Nope, I used one on mine, not a single scratch. They make paint friendly scrapers.
