Easy to take the "LX" badge off the driver's door? Just wanted it done really as my car has had an upgrade and it's not really an LX anymore.

What's the best way to do it to leave no damage?

theres various ways to do it depends how well the badge is stuck on i found that by lifting the edge of the badge it peeled straight off then the sticky stuff that was left i peeled off with my fingers it came off almost as a whole piece then a dab of tcut took the rest of the sticky stuff off then simply buff it up with some polish or yopu can use fishing wire and pull it gently along the back of the badge asda sell sticky stuff remover if you dont want to t cut that soaks into the foam sticker thats left and softens the glue up then with an old credit card it simply peels off.
like anything dont use sharp objects and be patient and youll not damage anything

My personal method is -

Heat the badges with a hairdryer to soften the glue.

Use dental floss to 'saw' off the badge.

Remove the residue with Goo Gone.
