Remove Badge

I am interested in removing the blue efficiency badge from the front fenders. How are these attached and how to remove?

Thanks for the reply. So they are attached with double sided tape? Did they leave any residue? Did you leave the blue efficiency badges off or replace with something else?

yes double tape. Usually no residue but I always rub the area with polish and it looks fine.

I used a heat gun + fishing string then I used a plastic scrap to remove excess tape, then polished + waxed.

Good decision! I was tired of people asking if my car was a diesel... BlueEfficiency be gone.

All good info already posted here. Yes, they come right off.

Frankly my Bluetec come with no BT badge. Not even on trunk lid.
I would not mind flash all those Corvette and Dodge Charger drivers that what they are smelling is coming from 4-cylinder diesel
Even if I don't give them much time to smell it.

I am definitely going to remove the blue efficiency badges. I'm thinking of adding the V8 BITURBO emblem.

I second upward comments. LIGHTLY heat, not too much, some people burn their clear coat...be careful. Don't heat hotter than what is comfortable for your bare hand to touch. Slide some fishing line behind the emblem/s and pull through. I find it's best to try to stay closer to the paint than the emblem, removes more of the adhesive. Goo Gone or Goof Off, any good brand swirl remover cut/polish paste, and those Turtle Wax type bug remover products all work well. Just get it off and clean the residues well...then wax where you did it.

I didn't use any heat to remove mine. Just dental floss, and then some WD40 to remove any residue. Followed with clay bar and some polish to clean it up. I also removed the Chrome door handle inserts this way.

My E550 dons the V8 BITURBO emblems.
