How To Remove/Replace emblem

basically you should do it step by step in this order:

1. get your embelem(s) and grommets

2. to remove emblem slip something like an old id card in between the emblem and body then put a cloth under it just to make sure u dont scratch the paint

3. then stick a flathead screwdriver in to pop it off be sure to slide it around to make it stick out then pull it off <if you dont care about the emblem>

4. you'll then notice that the grommets stayed either on the emblem or on the hood/trunk so to pull it off the hood/trunk just get a pair of needlenose pliers and pluck it off

5. then clean the area

6. push the new grommets in place

7. push the new emblem in and there you go




almost forgot, i love my girlfriend

i do it this way...
1. pop the hood
2. move how ever much foam stuff on the other side of your hood out of your way
3. you will see the two silver things(back of the roundel) sticking threw the 2 holes.. just push on them and out comes the roundel.
4. close your hood (1st make sure you put the foam stuff in place that you moved out of the way) and push the new roundel in.

weeee

Get a flathead pocket screwdriver. Real small and skinny. Put down a paper towal or napkin and slip it under and pry up. You dont even need to replace the groments but if you have them why not. Then just beat the new emblim on with your palm. It takes about 2 minuets.
