In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the emblem. This is a 2003 Honda, but emblem replacement is very similar for a lot of different vehicles. You'll need items to get the old one off, a tape measure, if you want to put it in the same place, heat gun or hair dryer helps get them off, rag, mineral spirits, and of course, a new bumper emblem from

If your badge is falling off, ours sits about a half inch down from the top of the bumper, and about an inch in from the top corner at the tail light. You can put yours wherever you'd like, but we're just giving you an idea of where it is from the factory. A little bit of heat goes a long way with these, be it from a heat gun, a hair dryer, or if you just park the vehicle in direct sunlight for a while.

Warming up the adhesive will help peel these off. Keep warming up the adhesive until you can wipe away the majority of the residue. Once the adhesive's nice and warm, you should be able to roll it right off. So long as there are no high spots or bulky parts of the adhesive left, you can go ahead and install your new badge.

Wipe down the surface with a mineral spirit or other kind of solvent, make sure that the new adhesive stays on there. Let that dry.

We have our new badge from Remove the protective backing, we're just going to go ahead, line ours up to what's left of the old badge, give it a nice firm press onto the bumper, hold it for a few seconds.

When you've finished applying pressure, allow the adhesive to set up for a few minutes. Make sure your badge is on there nice and secure. You're good to go. car, please visit Also check out our other helpful how-to, as well as diagnosis videos.
