    I see you're new, so I won't be rude. There is a search feature that you can use to find out almost anything you have a question for. If you don't find it after searching, post up a question.

    just pull them off. there is thick adheasive stuff behind them so if you want you can take a knife and stay close to the emblem and it wont touch the paint. thats how i did it. then just roll the adheasive off with your thumb. then take some WD40 to get the rest of the adheasive off. i buffed mine after just to make sure you cant tell it was there. looks alot smoother with them off.

    I would warn against the knife. Don't want to slip into your door then have to do touch up paint.

    Fishing line or floss, just to be safe.
