Simple Instructions for Debadging Your Vehicle
At least once a week our service technicians at Germain Honda of Dublin are asked about the safest way to debadge a car. We’re happy to provide simple steps to follow if you are considering debadging your vehicle in order to improve its aesthetics.
Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to see if you can determine if the badge is attached using adhesive. Badges using rivets or clips will leave holes behind and should be removed professionally, but you can easily remove adhesive-attached badges. Fill a jug or thermos with very hot, but not boiling, tap water, pouring it over the badge to help soften the adhesive. Or spray on an adhesive remover to soften the glue, concentrating it along the edges of the badge. You can also use a hair dryer to help soften the adhesive. Use dental floss or a plastic wedge to wiggle the badge off the car’s body.
