I recently bought an 05 C55 from a used car dealer. The dealer had already attached its plastic, three-dimensional name tag just above the C55 on the trunk. I think it's tacky and ugly. I can't quite get my hands underneath it. I don't want to scratch the paint,obviously. Does anyone have any experience with this problem?
Man I am proud of you.
I DESPISE advertising for my Auto man.
Try shooting some WD-40 or Creeping Oil BEHIND the offensive tag.
Let it soak some while.
The WD-40 will weaken the sponge pad and the adhesive glue.
You can try "popping" it off or if you have strong floss, you can wiggle it behind
the plate and "slice" it back and forth until the bond between the plate and the adhesive pad is severed.
Don't try and remove the Plate AND the Pad at the same time.
Do this in increments
Once the offending tag is remove you have easy access to that pad.
More WD-40 or Creeping Oil and soak it!
A little bit of finger nail persuasion or if your wife has a wooden cuticle stick use that to "scrape" off the small chunks remaining.
Once you get going; you'll see what I mean.
Good Luck! :thumbsup:
PS: WAX the entire section once your done.
WD-40 removes everything.
