just double sided tape/glue, and its tough to remove the left over tape, but it will be done, its going to be at least 15-30 to satisfy you. I've used goo gone and acetone to melt the tape then apply plenty of wax. good luck[:)]

HEAT IT UP with a blow dryer or??? then use Dental Floss to remove by sliding back and forth behind the emblems, then remove the rest of the GOOO from the factory while hot. Then Wax, did mine last year MUCH cleaner look in the back. Good luck.

just a question, why would you want to take it off?

whenever I see a car without emblems especially a mercedes I assume they were in a car accident and didnt get them put back on

Actually, it’s called “debadging� and is fairly common with European makes where the numbers indicate the engine size. Some people do this because they like the looks. Others do it to disguise the fact that they have a larger or smaller engine under the hood. You might want to check with local laws before doing it, because in some US states, it is illegal (presumably because it would make the car more difficult to identify).

I replaced my emblem because the original one was damaged. The emblem is secured to the vehicle by three holes in the gate and three prongs on the emblem.(at least thats how my 01 320 is) For you guys that took off the emblem, what did you do about the holes?

Why ?, if i have to explaim you would not understand...
we all have an ML and we all want our ML to look different, we want our car to be original...
i also own a motorcycle and is the same with them.. once you buy the car or the motrocycle you star adding stuff or taking stuff out...
at the end i tried to explain......
Why ? if i have to explain again, you would not understand....

Ya know, we each buy our ML's for different reasons. I wrote a big check for my first one an 00 430, then just in December I traded it in for an 05 500SE. I want the whole world to know what's in front of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [8D]
