    Any tip for the front emblem? Did you go through the engine bay? My bear paws couldn't get in there easily enough with pliers/screwdriver (after taking the clips/screws out of the plastic cowl). I've got two thoughts on how to approach:

    1. Heat it up enough to get the adhesive off, and then see if there's enough play to cut/snip the posts
    2. Mark the post locations and drill them out, and just snap the posts off from the inside.

    The back one was easy, took like a minute. The front one, not so much... I was messing around with it for about an hour and it got so loose, just wouldn’t come off. The adhesive wasn’t the problem; the posts wouldn’t come out for me. I get a little fed up with it and just yanked it out. One post broke but oh well. I feel like that’s the only way to do it. I didn’t go through the engine bay or anything crazy like that. I just went straight from the outside of the car and started prying around it.

    Thanks for that; gives me a third option. The front badges have metal retainers/nuts on the back of the post, which is why it doesn't just pop out like the rear one.

    I guess that makes sense as to why it didn’t come off easy. I just said “screw it” and yanked it off. I really didn’t wanna break one of the posts but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Hopefully you find a method that works!

    I decided to just go at it this afternoon. I used the hair dryer, some trim tools, and floss to get through the adhesive like you had said. Once I got it loose, I held it up with a curved trim tool to figure what to do.

    I ended up grabbing a putty knife and hammer after I couldn't find my damn Dremel. I just chiselled through the posts and let them fall into the b
