I'm pretty sure everything is glued. Use dental floss to separate them from the sheet metal. To get the glue off use GoofOff or Goop or something like that. Probably need to wax the area after removing the glue.

I removed the badges but the glue just wont come off.... I tried tar remover.. wd40.. rubbing alcohol... I will try googone or something like tht but I dnt really think it will come out...
it will come off. i used 3m adhesive remover, it took a while but the glue does eventually come off the car. i managed to get some of that stuff in my eye, omg, it burned like hell lol.

I believe all the letters (emblems, letters) are glued. You will have easier time if you do this in warmer weather. It is COLD here in Texas

I removed mine (LE,TOYOTA) letters without any problem. You can use nylon thread (fine fishing line) to cut the glue.

As for the glue, I use googone, you have to soaked it with paper towel for good 10 minutes first. Then it is all good

okk found out why its sooooo hard to remove it and for everyone else its so easy..... cause the last owner of the car or someone before had already taken it out and reglued with other type of glue... not crazy glue....something yellow and hard... well.. I asked a friend tht works at a body shop hes going to get some products he uses at his job and remove it and touch it up... hope it looks alright after...

I did mine a few days ago, and used Goo Gone to get it off. Warm weather certainly helps. It was 105 outside when I did it. But now it looks like shit, because the paint is so crappy, but under the badges, it didn't get worn out. So now I have an outline of all the logos on my trunk. If I could just repaint the trunk, I would, but I don't know where to find that color. Plus, it will look all new and the rest of the car will still look crappy. Damn!

Get some rubbing compound, polish, and a decent wax. That 3 step process should take care of the outlines.

Well the problem is that the entire car is kinda faded and slightly cloudy, or scratched, I can't tell. But underneath where the badges were, the paint looks brand new. I already all of the glue off. And I have tried all of those things you said, and I used a clay bar too. (Those things kick ass by the way. The paint surface was sooo smooth after I used it, and visually it helped a little too.)
