How to remove Jeep insignia

How do you remove the Jeep insignia from the rear corners of the tub?

I don't see any pins, clips or nuts on the inside of the tub, are they glued on?

Thanks!

Are you talking about the emblems? If so, those are adhesive...

I believe double-sided tape was used. At least that's what was holding mine on. I would use either a thin putty knife or a thin wire like 0.030" mig welding wire.
The wire can also be heated with a torch to help when the wire is pulled between the logo and tub. I'd be careful of melting the logo or paint when doing this.

Try a hand held hair dryer. Many times the adhesive will warm up and let go.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

Thanks guys! I am repainting so a little damage to the paint is not a problem. I'll get the heat gun out and go to it. I have to use the heat gun to get the hinge bolts out anyway.

If your going to use a heat gun I would not heat the emblem, but heat the inside of the tub.

Easy. Get a piece of fishing line long enough to hold securely between both hands and slip it behind the emblem and pull down and side to side and it will cut through the adhesive without damage to paint.

OK "2Extreme" The heat gun is just to soften up the thread lock and corrosion on the hinge bolts. Without heat they snap--ask me how I know? With the heat gun they come out with no problem. I spent a lot of time getting two hinge bolts out, as in hours drilling breaking off an easy out then trying to drill out the easy out. I then put my needle point soldering iron in the hole and was able to get it to come right out. I love the heat gun! :0
