    Emblem removal from front grill ('04-'07)

    I am in the process of changing out all of the emblems on my '06 V. I have all of the V emblems changed, now all that is left is the shield and wreath on the front grill and have no idea how to remove or install it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Stock. The guy that owned the car before must have kept the car out side most of the time. The emblems are faded so I am changing them all out.

    Side emblems. Heat from hair blower and sun and fishing line I think should work unless they have some stud or hardware which I doubt. Measure them out so you can replicate the location. Grill is just grill removal you will see once you get the mesh out how to do it. I think you maybe can remove grill while the bumper is on. I took my bumper off and removed both grills just to paint the trim. But the emblem seems easy to replace. Post pics upon completion

    Thanks. I figured it out Friday. I already did the V emblems a month ago with the tip you listed, worked out great. The front grill emblem just peels off using a small flat tip screwdriver getting between the emblem and emblem grill plate. New one was easy to install. Emblems really helped wit the appearance, my 100k car looks like a 40k car. Very happy with it.
    Thanks for the info.

    So where are you getting the new emblems and how much are they?

    It's easy. Just take a small flat tip screw driver and pry between the emblem and the grill. The emblem is held on by heavy duty double sided tape. The grill is formed for the emblem so make sure your new one will fit. Message me if you have any questions. I can get the stock V emblems for a really good price, let me know if you need them.
