Removing emblems/badges for re-use

Can anyone tell me the best method for removing the "Ranger XLT" fender badges? Getting ready to replace the left front fender on my 94 Ranger. I have the damaged fender off so I can see the pins sticking through the fender.

heat it up and then either use a screwdriver to pry it off or give fishing line an attempt. I always just use a flathead screwdriver.

Fishing line and Pedro's hair dryer he keeps leaving at my house works great

Thanks. After asking the question I did a "search" and there are a bunch of posts on removing emblems and both of your suggestions are there many times. I'll use a heat gun and fishing line. Sounds like the most logical but it comes off hard then I'll try the screwdriver method.

if you do go with the screwdriver method, wrap the screwdriver with a microfiber or a rag so you don't damage the fender. I've never scratched mine and i've done it on 3 rangers at this point lol. heat is a must though, it'll soften up the adhesive nicely.

He's removing it from a damaged fender.....his old fender.... dum dum walrus pants. U MAD BRO?





I like to use a small flat-head....like a 1/8" x 4 or 5". And work through the double stick 3M tape with multiple passes. But I've broken the 83-05 badges that way without any heat. Just take your time 'cause I assume you're putting it on the new fender? You don't want to break it in half. The heat and fishing line works best to prevent that from happening.

I use a combo of the fishing line/dental floss with goo gone to get things started, then a thin putty knife to get wherever the other methods won't go.

Make sure to completely remove all the old foam & tape gunk from the badges & thoroughly clean all the residue off with goo gone before applying new outdoor foam tape.
