Question Front bonnet badge removal

The front Ford badge is looking a little weathered so I've got a replacement. Just want to know if there's a good way to remove the existing without damaging paint, panel, etc?? Is it glued down with extraordinarily fantastic stuff or comes off pretty easily? Someone suggested a hair-dryer to warm up the glue? Any advice appreciated.

Re: Front bonnet badge removal

The emblem has pins on the back of it that go into the front bumper and have little rounder holders "I don't know the technicial word for them" that holds the emblem in. To do it right, you need to take the front bumper off.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Just leave it in the sun or use a hair dryer to get some heat on the tape and rip the sucker off
Mine came off when drying it one day as the chamois got under the edge and POP it was off there was double sided black tape on the badge and there was no pins on it either it was just the standard FORD blue oval plastic badge
I was going to leave it off and fill the indent but that was tooo much trouble and bought a new one from FORD.
