Has anyone removed the wee Up! badge from the rear window. Is it just glued on? I just think it would make cleaning the rear window easier and for a cleaner look in general...<div id="isChromeWebToolbarDiv" style="display:none">

Cheers,
Tim

I specifically ordered my white up! without the "up!" badge on the back but I will soon be removing the VW badge soon as well (video to follow).

Badges are normally easy to remove with a hairdrier and some patience!

Or an angle-grinder and lots of impatience!

Dental floss and a hair dryer....seriously!

Heat the badge and holding the dental floss between two hands, use it in a sawing motion to break the sticky seal....any bits left behind can be removed with alcohol swab, etc etc

Yep, dental floss to cut through the backing foam, WD40 to clean off the gunk. I did it on my Smart because one of the letters was wonky (smart) so I took them all off :)

The backing foam sits between the badge and the glue to provide a soft surface which prevents scratches. Think of 3M double-sided adhesive tape - glue, foam, glue.

I never thought I would consider de-badging my Up!, but seeing the picture of Mjölner's could actually change my mind on the subject.Now, imagine that the car is black. And the rear window is tinted. And maybe with some aftermarket tinted rear lights (they're bound to come)... Hmm!

I just removed mine. The dental floss and hair drier worked a treat. Nail polish remover helped shift the adhesive and I ensured it was all off with a dash of wd40. It looks so much better without, despite my initial reservations.
