Has anyone dealt with the issue of faded emblems on the front and back of an 2008 Escalade? Are they replaceable? Is it something I can do or does it have to be done professionally? Grateful for any help?
I just did this on my '07. If you go on Ebay, there is a seller DaddyCaddy or CaddyDaddy(can't remember which) and he sells OEM Caddy parts. I bought a brand new front and rear emblem for $60 shipped. They were perfect. To get the old ones off I heated them with a hair dryer and used a plastic putty knife to ever so gently pry it off. Each took a solid 20 or so minutes. Most of the time spent was removing the old double sided tape. The new ones go on no issues.

Re: 2008 Escalade with faded emblems.
I fixed mines with 3mm red reflexive tape, I had it over a year cant tell and I am picky. I didnt want to replace badges I was afraid I would ruin the paint or chip it also I know that it will happen again.
Yes I replaced both, they were easy to do and not too expensive. They are held on by a very gluey substance, but when you have they new one in hand you will see the alignment studs and see how by simply(carefully) getting a razorblade started you can remove the old and replace with the new. Big difference..
