Re: Front Grill Badge Removal
This is the method I used some weeks back.
I removed the front V shaped grill complete so it would be easier to work on, it is held on by 5 bolts.
Next remove the chrome surround to gain access to the pins for the badge. The chrome surround is held on by 1 centre bolt and clips around the outside.
Now remove the badge from the chrome surround - it is held in place by 2 pins and glue on the back of the badge. The pins have retaining clips which need to be removed first.
Heat the badge front and back with a hair dryer until it is hot enough to soften the glue. Carefully push on the pins to push the badge off - you may need to keep heating the badge a few times but it should come off when the glue softens.
Once the badge is off then clean up the surface beneath the badge. The replacement badge came with a rubber backing and I used some silicone sealer on both sides of it to help stick it in place back on the chrome surround - might not be the best thing but works none the less.
Put the retaining clips back on the badge pins and then put it all back together and fit back onto the car.
