Has anybody got any suggestions and tips on how to remove the MINI Badge off the rear hatch of an 04 Cooper s , i have to replace the one on my daughters car as some grub pinched the MINI logo out of the centre of it and you can't just buy the sticker itself , unlike the Logo in the wheel centres that can be brought seperate .

I just want some tips before i do it as i don't want damage the paint , i'm guessing they just peel off.

It's got a super adhesive double sided tape holding it on with two little plastic bungs that fit into the steel panel. I've not done it myself but have heard of good success with a hairdryer or heat gun (on low) and fishing line to cut in behind the badge.

Dental floss with a little help from a heat gun works really well for badge removal!
