Yes use a hairdryer, the longer you hold it in front of the badge the better, when the badge gets loose take the floss and start to take it off, you may need to re heat teh glue to get the floss all the way through. There is a guide in the installs tab on the specifics of debadging it

You don't have to use a hair dryer. I didn't, all I used was dental floss and a wet cloth to clean the area off after the badge was removed.

um... if you use a hair dryer it'll be ALOT easier!
i suggest using thin fishing line since it'll hold out a lot better than the floss...

it was extremely easy to debadge my car without a hair dryer. And yes, I do agree that a fishing line would be much better...the floss doesn't hold up well

i didn't use floss or fishing line, i just used the hairdryer and heated the glue till the badges were able to be pulled off, then i wiped the glue off and it looks good

I've had my car since May, and was thinking about debadging the toyota symbol, but I am worried about it leaving a mark from where it might have faded. Does anyone know if it will?

The emblem on the 03-04 is not held by glue, if removed you will have 2 holes exposed.
