Heat up the old emblem with sunshine or hair dryer and rub behind it gently with fishing line or floss. The glue gets loose when it's hot.

The badge is held on with double sided adhesive tape. I took mine off using a plastic putty knife (like the kind used for spackle) and worked in slowly from all sides until it came off. There was adhesive left on the car that I took off using Goof Off glue remover and elbow grease. I used polishing compound after all the adhesive was gone to make a smooth surface. You can buy 3M double sided molding adhesive tape from your local auto body supply shop to put the new one on. Clean the new emblem with the Goof Off and let dry before applying the tape to the back of the emblem. Then trim all the way around to make it neat. Remove the backing and apply to the car where you want it (de-wax the area first with the Goof Off). Remember, once it touches it's stuck, so make sure it's lined up right before touching the paint. Then press firmly and rub with a rag all over to assure good adhesion.

Then stand back and admire!
