use a blowdryer on the emblems then slip a piece of fishing line to break thru the sticky stuff. The blowdryer heats up the sticky stuff. Remember theres two bolt thingies on the back that go into holes so you pull it straight out, and you need to move the fishing line around them.

Now, I know your a newbie....and someone will say this.......

Please Use the Search function....it's been covered many many times in the past. First times a freebie, second time, I'm kickin ya off the site. HAHA...just kidding. Hey, welcome to the site, and always remember that search key.


Basically, you want to heat up the emblem and use fishing line to go between the emblem and the body. This is to not only heat up the emblem to make it moveable, but to also heat up the tape/glue which it's fastened to the body with. There are two alignment holes so the factory knows to keep the emblem straight, and not crooked.

good luck!!

There will be 2 holes left behind, so you will have to fill and paint the fenders if you want to completely get rid of them.

Whatever you do don't use a scotch-brite pad or knife to get the goop off... Use some goof off or w/e cause now I have scratched-up paint around my emblems...

I'm a dumbass.

WD-40 Works well for removing the goop. Why not get some '06 emblems from : http://jusnesmodified.com/store/inde...products_id=28
