First research to make sure there is no guide pins because there will be holes in the car. All cars are different.
I use dental floss to work under the badge. You can use a hair dryer to help, do not overheat or you will blister paint.
Sometimes I will use some type of plastic soft scraper to help.
If your car is older there may be a different color due to fading under the badge. I debage mine as soon as I purchase one, just think it looks cleaner.
I usually will buff and polish the whole section the badge is in to make sure the evidence of the badge is gone.
