    How do I remove the rear subaru badge from a 2012 wrx hatch?

    Hey guys, I just got a 2012 red wrx hatchback and the rear Subaru badge on the trunk lid is painted black. Does anyone know how I can remove it to replace it with another one?
    Here is the picture of the car, Thanks!

    Im not sure but im guessing its just some double sided tape. This ebay listing may help give you an idea

    You can always go with a vinyl overlay if you are nervous. I like how you call it a hatch instead of a wagon.

    other ebay posts seem to also have double sided tape but different holes.

    A bunch of Goo Gone, some fishing wire or floss and some heat (hair dryer) would help

    Some suture or dental floss will cut the adhesive without damaging paint. If there are pins with grommets that will require some more work. The plastic 1/2" wide straps they use to bound boxes like heavy car parts (such as struts) or available in any large company that has a shipping department works well to slip behind it and gives you something to pull on instead of taking a screwdriver to it.

    I would recommend the vinyl overlay route as well. That way if you get tired or want to switch it numerous times it is super cheap. By the way, that specific badge is not just stuck on with tape. It is actually attached to the vehicle and if removed would leave a hole in your trunk (I know you are planning on replacing, but I just wanted to mention that. I was originally going to remove mine completely until I discovered that).

    Thanks for the help guys. I'll probably go with the vinyls overlay route because that seems like the easiest way to switch them to different colors. Thanks again
