I just got a silver Carrera emblem for my trunk and I wanted to know how to remove the original matte black one without damaging the paint.

Thanks!

Here's a link to a web page that shows you the method by which to safely remove your original emblem. Dental Floss!!! : http://boxsters.addr.com/hacks/logo_removal.htm

I just did the same thing yesterday....dental floss to pry up the edge....then pulled it off.

To remove the residue, let goo gone sit on the residue then rolloff withyour finers ( back and forth) then clean with more goo gone.

"Carrera" was etched into paint on my 2002

If you ask the people at home depot there is a adhesive neutralizing product they have that is really good. It basically smells like kerosene, but you just squirt a little onto the top edge, give it a second and then using the attached to the bottle plastic scraper get under the adhesive goo and then one more squirt and it'll come right up. The best part is that the adhesive neutralizing is only temporary so after you get it off the car it is ready to go back on in a minute or so. The dental floss method is effective if you are careful if not the adhesive on one end can cause you to pry into the paint on the opposite end from which you are lifting. Kind of like opening a soda can. I've de-badged all of my cars just something I picked up in Germany.

If you're using the dental floss method, make sure you heat up the emblem thoroughly with a hot hair dryer before you pull the floss underneath the emblem. That will help minimize the sticky residue that's left. Goo gone should be sufficient, but the adhesive neutralizer sounds like a good product as well.
