As above

Heat it up gently, then pull fishing wire through to cut the adhesive.

Tar and glue remover to remove residue

If necessary, a light single stage polish may be required, although I doubt you'll need this as the car is fairly new

Yeah as above... Just take it easy when pulling it if so you don't scratch the paint

I thought the back of my Fiesta looked good! Is that tint film on your lights/reflectors?

I used a kettle and boiling water for removing my Fiesta badge. It came off no problem, gave it a quick buff after and jobs a goodun'. . . I'd say the fishing wire technique is probably the safer option

Fishing wire and gentle heat is Definitely the safer option..

I did put some cold in first to make sure it wasn't boiling boiling. But yeah, no problems at all doing that way, it peeled off and so did the adhesive with no effort and no damage. I admit I was apprehensive before doing it though. lol

Why on earth would anyone want to remove an ecoboost badge?

Does ecoboost signify a pikey car or something?

 

I think people remove them as "Eco" cars tend to have the meaning of 'slow'. Not many people would want an eco badge on the back of a car they want to modify for performance reasons etc.

 

However I'm keeping mine on the back as the Ecoboost engines are probably the best in the fiesta (zetec anyway!) and have better performance etc so not something I have a big interest in removing. Also at shows instead of an engine cover I can just put a piece of A4 paper in the engine bay to show how much of a tiny tiny engine I have (The bigger the engine you have, the lesser 'equipt' you are down below some say right? - so I thought I could show the opposite :yahoo::biggrin:)

The ecoboost engines are anything but slow/weak though.. although I wouldn't mind people thinking I've got an older car with the duratec engine, then show them up in a 1.0 when they try to overtake! Haha

Yeh I was thinking about 'outsiders'. ~Those who don't know about the Fiesta's may just assume that because it has an eco badge on it, then your an eco tree hugger - when infact its probably the best in the range!

I had a new MkII XR2 in 85. The first week or so was quite exciting, the next 16 years weren't ;)

I've had my ecoboost for 15 months and it surprises/excites me every time I give it some beans, brilliant.

Pulling away from lights in turbo, staggering. How much ARE drive shafts these days? :D

I broke a couple ~50 years back.
