    looks like they are held on by that awful sticky foam, what's the best way to remove without damaging the paint and leaving sticky residue behind.
    thanks

    I used a really small screwdriver to pries the edge up and then used my fingers to peel it off..

    Then i used a pressure washer to blast the worst of the sticky stuff off..

    And finally some good old fashioned elbow grease and polish to take the last of it off..

    Worked a treat :)

    Good luck!

    Apparently, referencing an older thread, using a hair dryer can work if they're being a pain in the ass as it heats the glue up!! =)

    Dental floss or some nylon string. Work the string behind the badge and use a sawing movement with the string to cut through. Once off I use the edge of the A, flat against the paint work to glently peel the clue off. Then T cut to get rid of any dirt marks that may be left. Take your time and jobs a goodun.
