Get a hair dryer (heat gun will work, but you have to be really careful) and point it at the badge. Be sure to move it around a little bit so you dont mess up the paint. Then get floss, or fishing line, and slide it between the body and the badge. If it doesnt slide with some effort, heat it up some more.

Sometimes there is some stuff left. Use goo gone or something (wd-40 works but not sure how it will affect paint) squirt it on a paper towel, and set it on the spot (make sure it is soaked good) dont rub it around. goo gone dissolves it, so if you move it, it wont work as good. Then... clean the area real good and wax it, just to be safe.

Have fun.

To the best of my knowledge there is no adhesive under the hood/bonnet roundel. There are two pins that hold it in place - these can be accessed from the underside of the hood/bonnet. It is very simple to do. I have a DIY somewhere but will have t dig it up.

I think wonderbread is thinking of the "boot."

Clips in my experience

If you care try checking inside the hood.... if you don't then screwdriver ahoy!

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

On the US 'bonnets' the roundel is held in by two rubber grommets on pins molded into the back of the roundel.

Take a flat head screwdriver, cover it with a rag and just pry it off.

Make sure if your're replacing it, to get new grommets too. prying them off will muck them up pretty good.

Need a new sig...

A BMW is for the soul, a Chevy is for groceries...
