Bonnet & Boot badge removal

Hi all

I figure this has probably covered in another topic, but I'll be b*****ed if I can find it any where

I am looking for some advice on the best way of removing the bonnet and boot badges from my 08 Cooper, as the car is going into the graphic shop to have some 2 tone 'shelby cobra' stripes fitted The car is mellow yellow with a black roof, and I'm going for the black stripes front & back with yellow across the roof........sorry I digress. The graphics shop are happy to remove any glue residue etc but they asked me to remove the badges themselves, so any advice as to the best way without potentially scratching my nice new cooper would be well appreciated.

Cheers,

Brian

Dental floss in a very carefully sawing motion under the badges with more effort away form the paint. Then a little goo gone will remove the residue

Hi Twister,

Thanks for that.

I was just wondering as well (full of questions me)
Whether the badges are just stuck on or are there locator pins?
Does anyone know if the dealers do a sticky for the badges as I don't really want to just use bodgy 3M sticky pads

Cheers

Hi there,

On the first gen MINIs, the bonnet badge definitely had two locator pins, but I'm not sure on the new model - I haven't checked that specific detail!

I just dropped my Cooper off at the graphics shop to have the 'shelby' stripes applied, and after attacking the car with dental floss yesterday (I didn't get to many odd looks honestly I didn't) I can confirm that both the bonnet & boot badges on the R56 have locator pins.

Thanks for the advice about the dental floss

Badges

Hi

Thinking of doing the rear badge myself, so this discussion is useful.

So when you took the rear off where there holes in the body for the pins?

I have looked at the badge carefully from the top and it just looks like tape?

All the BM's I have had in the past always had stuck on badges so came off ok without leaving any marks

Did you get any marks?

Thanks

Yes the badges front and back have locator pins with holes in the body, and whilst I was at it I also noticed that the locator pins are in different places on both the front and rear badges
