thanks for the quick reply mate,

i think it may be 145mm wide and 60mm high on my original which is much the same as yours,

close enough to your spec mate

thanks for measuring it for me B)

Blimey mate, mangled is an understatement!!

Looks like you have a measurement now so at least I don't need to brave the wind and rain outside lol.

my rear badge has some white glue stuff around the edges and I was considering removing it to clean it up, or replace it but you've put me off now lol.

try removing the white with petrol mate,

get an old sock and wipe, could be just was residue as the bonding for the badge is black

On a related note, I'm thinking of replacing the TDCi badge on the rear of my Focus - the laquer is all chipped and missing, and the red letters are faded.

Replacements are cheap on eBay, but when I remove the original I expect to leave a load of sticky residue behind on the tailgate. What's the best way to remove this residue without damaging the paint?
