Default Removing badge from car?

I got that Toyota badge thing a while back and want to put it on my car. Is it just held on by glue?

Double sided tape, use the usual methods to remove emblems.
Heat gun, floss, mineral spirits, etc...

I've never removed a badge so I have no idea what the usual methods would be, but I will break out the heat gun and give it a shot, thanks!

The heat softens what ever held it in place, hair dryer on high works ok too.
Are you removing the factory emblem? If so you will prob need some sort of solvent to remove the residue. Even goo-gone or WD-40 will work with some elbow grease.

I have an actual heat gun. Yeah it's the factory emblem. I'll post some pictures when I get it off. I don't want to mess the paint up

There are tons of ways but all of them take effort.I prefer heat gun and plastic scrapers or gift cards to get the bulk of it off.For long worded ones I'll use dental floss to cut it off so I dont break them.Lastly one thing that I've found to work very well on some glues and pine sap is RainX.Yeah there are cheaper things but if it is a sensitive area give it a try and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

be careful though, some badges are not just glued on.

Good point,although its usually on older cars.I always check behind the panel if possible and assumed most others do the same.If in doubt use the dental floss/fishing line method to cut through the double stick tape.If there is a bolt or threaded stud etc you'll find out before breaking the badge
