I need to replace the rotating rear badge on my GTV as the lacquer is cracking off on the existing one.

Are any special trim removal tools required to remove the rear trim in the boot?

If so, can anyone recommend where to get them from?Would rather be forearmed before attempting it.
Thanks
Jay

Trim removal kits are usually quite similar - 4 or 5 plastic or metal spatulas with forks or levers at the ends. I prefer the plastic ones as there's less chance of scratching anything.

Slide the forked end under the rectangular clips lengthways and lever out - the further in you push the tool the more it squeezes the clip and makes it easier to get out.

Keep your wits about you as they tend to fly off when they come out and it helps if you spot where they land!
