    hello,
    Can anyone recommend how to remove, from the bodywork, the sticky stuff backing which holds the badges onto the bootlid without risk of scratching please?........

    Hairdryer to soften and use your thumb to sort of roll it off. Then a bit of t-cut.

    Be careful removing badges as it can take the paint off. Heat them up with a hairdrier first
