you take off the old ones by taking a pocket screwdriver and slowly taking them off you then pop out the two rubber grommets and then place the new ones in once this is done you pop in the new emblem and push down in the center to make sure it is all the way in ..... fairly simple

Dealer showed me a trick. Use a piece is packing strapping about 18" long. Slip it under the edge of the roundel and pull up. It pops it off with no danger of scratching or marring the paint. I now keep a piece in my parts box for just that purpose.

The strapping that you sometimes find around a cardboard package of a heavy item. Think about it. You know what I am talking about.

+1 One of the safest ways to go about this issue.

Ive used the packing straps, works ok. It just depends on how stuck the emblem is.

Dental floss.

Like a few of them together. Not just one. Put a few loops on each side (3&9 o'clock) and pull up.

2 straps (or dental floss) each at 3 & 9 o'clock. Lift strait up at the same time.
