    Take a thin piece of fishing line, slip it behind the emblem and pull it back and forth with both hands. You need to cut the double stick tape behind it, that's how they're held on. Clean up with goo gone(goof off) of better yet get a 3M rubber eraser wheel attachment for your drill.

    you can use a hair dryer to heat up the adhesive and make it easier to work with. Recommend you do it on a relatively warm day, cuz removing emblems/ moldings when its cold out is a royal PIA haha.

    No holes, just glue , I painted mine black last week , and the temperature was in the 90's , so the glue stayed very sticky. I was able to stick it back to the original glue after I painted it! Acourse it was sitting in the sun the entire time , and I pull on it regulary to check and it's still stuck like it came from the factory! Good luck
