Get a heat gun, which is a hair dryer lookin thing, and put the heat to the badges for a lil bit, like just a few seconds...that will heat the glue up and enable you to easily peel off the badges...For the glue that will be left when you remove the badges, just go get some 3M Adhesive Remover (I like the aerosol) and spray on and wipe off (you may need to use a lil elbow grease when wiping the glue off cuz it can be a mother effer) but that should work out wellfor ya

Why are you removing the badges anyway?

If you dont got a heat gun, a hair dryer will suffice. But itll take longer.

I actually just debadged my 02 Lancer, and like the previous posts said I used a heat gun. It's rather simple, and the glue that is left on is a pain in the *** to get off. Pretty much any adhesive remover will work. And if you use a hair dryer like Dusty said it will take alot longer because the hair dryer doesn't get as hot.
