Anyone know how to replace the rear badge? Because mine is all faded and looks horrible, replaced the front no problem and centre caps. Just need thr rear badge chamged but no one seems to know how to do it? I'd rather do it myself than pay someone at a garage to do it!

    Heat the badge up with heat gun / hair drier and use fishing wire to prise the badge off  :thumb:

    yep, fishing line pulled up from the bottom of the badge to cut the glue, then put a flat bladed up behind the badge and pull. the blade will lever against the panel so any mark will be hidden by the badge. put tape round the blade so it doesn't break the surface of the paint.

    the factory put a big blob of black sealant behind the badge but the new one will just have a neat bit of adhesive :thumb:
