    Subaru make badge removal

    Ok so after nearly a week of searching I am breaking down and posting, because for the love of god, of course I know how to take off the "subaru" the "symmetrical awd" and the "wrx" plastic lettering.

    I want took know how to remove, so I can paint, my oval 5 star subaru make emblems.

    I saw a tutorial on a bugeye but that was the front grill badge (which I haven't even looked at). I pulled apart the trunk and saw 2 studs in the back. So idk where to go from there. As well as what has to be done to remove it from the front of the car.

    This is on a 2010 wrx. Any help or reference will be much appreciated.

    The subaru badges are held on by 3m 2 sided tape and the blu oval set inside the chrome is held on the same way. I have been talking with Nate at rebadge design and graphics to order some carbon fiber ovals to replace the blue ones and also spoke with my dealer on ordering a new set and that's what they told me . Hope this helps

    I went behind the subie oval kept breaking the fishing line. Guess I'll have to bust out the heat gun then.

    I should have finished haha . I'm going to take a heat gun and a small composit trim removal tool and pry them off. I think this will work for you. Those studs that you seen in the back are for aligning it up when you put them on.

    What year is your car? The 3rd gens oval is not held on with tape. It is bolted on. You can access the bolt under the covering material in the back. You just peel it back.

    11blacksti I had the trunks materials pulled out. I just saw plastic chrome studs. Which I tried to bang out with no success. I did not see bolts on the underside at all.

    Hmmm...Well either way, the fishing line won't do the trick. I'm assuming you tried prying them out the opposite way? I was going to just take mine off when I debadged by car until I realized that it was actually attached and would leave a hole in the trunk!

    Yeah I can't believe I can't find anything on this. I almost felt like it was connected when it ate through my 10lb test. I gotta figure this out grrr

    I was told that those were guides for aligning them. I need to know this also so I don't break them to remove the ovals out of them. They are any where from $60 to $80 a piece. I though I would get a set and have them done but I was ordering them for my legacy also .

    Same with the 06-07 Subaru emblem on the trunk.
