I pulled it off with my fingers, then wiped it with an old wet terrycloth washcloth until the sticky residue was gone. Other people have much fancier methods including dental floss or fishing line and hair dryers and stuff.

Just run some floss underneath the emblems all the way through. Note that the Honda "H" Logo has holes behind it (both front and back) If you want them black, i would suggest something called "plastidip" You don't need to take the emblems off with that and when you sell it, you can just peel the black coating off. Search youtube there are a lot of tutorials for plastidip emblems there

Well since the adhesive backing won't be as sticky after removing it, id just buy new emblems. and to rid of the sticky residue left on car after removing, use products like Sticker Shock at auto stores, OR Goo Gone

from my Civic, same applies to Accord



residue was a bit more stubborn on the Accord for some reason. Both cars were done when new (Accord on day 1, Civic on week 1)

they aren't exactly screws... like they are sort of two prongs. The prongs go into the holes and that holds the emblem in. There is still some adhesive though, but i think that it is mainly the prongs holding them in. For the "H" logo, you need something to gently pry it off (the floss wasn't strong enough for me, I used a small flat head screw driver being very careful- success, no paint damage for me)

I've removed 4 and all 4 those prongs have broke upon removal.

Buy new Emblem and paint that.

Going by my Mugen grille, the front was held on by two metal washer clips. No adhesive was on the front at all.

Rear, there's a small line of adhesive on the top border of the emblem. For the two peg clips, open your trunk, remove the trunk liner (if you have a V6 model), and look right above where the license plate lights are and you'll see two white pegs. Use your fingers or pliers to pull them off. Then you can use floss or fishing line to saw through the adhesive (after warming it up with a hair dryer on medium or high or heat gun on low).

I would say to paint it. IMHO, i think that the LED light will just look sort of dorky/wanna-be-cool-looking if it isn't done really nicely, so I would go with the glossy red pain (Esp if you have a white, silver, or black car)
