The first step is to loosen the adhesive. It is important to note that while most vehicles have badges that are connected with a strong adhesive glue, there are some badges that are connected with hard plastic or metal clips that are connected to the body of the car. These badges may need to be removed by professionals, but if you have a badge that's connected with glue, you can remove it on your own.

You can soften the adhesive with hot water. Pour hot water just above the badge but be careful not to burn yourself. Be sure that the water isn't boiling because this can damage the paint. You can also use a hair dryer or adhesive softener to help get the badge off. Dental floss or fishing line can be used to cut through the adhesive. Once the badge has been removed, wash, dry, and wax the area to remove debris.
