The OEM Badge is plastic, but its' held into the airbag cover by a small metal clip. Its not super stiff metal, you can bend it out of the way rather easily, and could probably re-use it if you needed too. But the space under it is pretty flat, and nicely recessed. Taking the airbag off our wheels its super easy, as for getting the airbag cover off, thats a little more tricky. It's held on by 11 small metal tabs, that the plastic cover clips onto. I bent the lower 8 and gently pried /slipped the cover off, and had another steering wheel cover I got from a salvage yard off an Avenger. Slipped the new cover with the fancy badge back on, and re-bent the tabs to hold in like factory. Took about 30 min, can't even tell it was apart. The airbag is nicely compressed, and as long as you're gentle pose no harm to it.How'd you pop off the Dodge Badge? was it stuck on with glue?
