    Heat it up with a hair dryer and pull it out. It has to pins that align it in place.

    I just left mine sitting in the driveway vs garage. The Texas heat did the trick & peeled off fairly simple.

    Texas has some crazy hot weather, that's why we moved to NJ.

    I have a front pitted Crest/Wreath and a rear Crest/Wreath that is breaking inside of itself, and the wreath on the rear has the chrome finish coming off. I have also noticed that the wheel hub covers crests also have faded and the red in the crest is now pink. I have attached a picture of my rear crest/wreath.

    This seems to be a continuous problem. Is there a crest available that is only silver so it would not need to be replaced in a couple years?

    Ok, does anyone have a part # for this? Mine is an 08 and both the front and rear emblems are faded and need replacement. Thanks

    That works like a champ. Growing up in a body shop I've seen it done many times myself. I personally use Flax Twine as it is more durable and doesn't break as easy.

    I always use gmpartsdirect.com for reference and part numbers. Then I look for a better deal elsewhere. I just replaced my front and back and got pretty good deals on eBay.

    If you need an emblem, I accidentally ordered a front when I meant to order the rear. It's new and never installed. Paid $20 from eBay for it and would give it to you if you pay shipping. Let me know.

    Sure, I'll take it. Can you send me a pic of it to miked1962@comcast.net and we can set up payment and shipping.
