Emblem pin broken


Recommended Posts

I noticed my hood emblem was loose. Upon investigation I found out that one of the plastic pins was broken. The part where the flat part of the pin is bonded to the emblem has come detached. I have removed the emblem but the pin and the nut holding it in place remain. Any suggestions on how to remove the nut? - I need to hold the flat part of the pin from rotating while I unscrew the nut. Problem is I don not want to bend the flat part because once I remove it, I will simple super glue it back on to the emblem and reattach the emblem with the nuts. Can this be done or should I just order a new emblem and spare myself the hassle?

I'm not sure if super-glueing is likely to be a permanent solution. Usually the emblem gets damaged when people press on it to close the bonnet.

I'd probably buy a new one, over here they are about 45 Euros, so I guess that'll be about 50 bucks.

Cheers,

Uwe

The mounting pins are metal. It helps to have 2 people. One grabs what little sticks out with pliers that have sharp teeth, and the other turns the 8 mm nut with a socket. Then I solder the pin back on.

I have done this for local owners who press on the crest to close the trunk.
