    I'm pretty sure it's just stuck on using badge tape,
    if I was to try I would probably use an old AA card to start lifting one part ( pick a strongish part of the badge) and try not to bend the badge as it will no dought snap

    Possibly use a heat gun or some hot water to soften the glue ?
    this is just how I would try it... I saw mine off at the body shop and didn't have any pins holding it on just the badge tape / glue

    You can use fishing line to 'saw' through the foam tape.

    Thanks , but I think I prefer mine with badge.
    but I'm liking the rear wiper blade
    Does anybody else have the rear wiper park on the right?
