Removal/ replacement of M5 Grill badge

The M5 badge on the front grill has a break in the 5, the top section was broken off. So i have found a new M5 badge for the front grill, OEM part, which i want to install.

Seems the M5 badge is stuck to the grill via double sided tape or something similar.

Any suggestions on how to remove the existing? I haven't done any stuff like this before so not sure exactly how to do a neat job on the removal of the existing. How do clean the old sticky stuff off before putting the new badge on?

Thanks

Glen

Use fishing wire to remove the old badge (you could probably rip it off with fingers/blade). Heat gun/hair dryer to warm up the old double sided tape and remove the chunks as best you can. Then remove residue with goo gone. Wipe down the badge area with isopropyl alcohol then apply the new badge. Good luck!
