Hey guys figured someone would have doen his but did when i've tried searching all i get is "Could not delete old search id sessions"

So i want to remove the ford, fairmont and ghia badges from the rear and the ghia badges from the side above the indicators. How are they held on? like is it just glue? or something harder than that to remove?

The side ghia badges are just double sided tape. Some of the rear badges are double sided tape, but one of them is actually held on by pins. This will then need to be filled and repainted. I just dont remember which one it was.

On my EF, the falcon gli badge had pins, not sure if the ford one has as its still on. Id say the fairmont badge probably has the pins.

The Gli part has no pins, but the falcon part does.

The "Fairmont" badge on the filler panel is easy to pull off.. but leaves 2 leg hole's.. that filler panel is easy to take off.. 4 phillips head screws hold it in... and then filling in the holes is a cinch!..

do you have to take the rear bar off or just tail lights to access these screws?

i believe it is hard to access the corner screws that hold the filler panel in place without dropping the corners of the bumper down...
