    WS.6 Badge falling off

    The WS.6 Badge is loose on my 99 TA. Does anyone else have this problem? What is the best fix? I'm afraid it will fall off completely and I'm sure they cost big $$ to get a new one, especially for a 30th Anniversary Edition.

    Pull it off, clean up the glue and get yourself some 3M double sided molding tape and re-install the badge.

    Super glue it back on. That's what I did to my SS symbole that feel off from the side.

    I'm a little worried about using Super Glue. Won't it eat into the clear coat?

    use a big screw that should hold it

    or the tape would work too

    lookin for a ws6

    I have always used silicone. You can always remove the badge at a later time just by running dental floss in between the paint and badge. I am not sure of the long term effects on paint though.

    Better to use the 3M doubleside tape. It sticks just fine and doesn't have as big a risk for harming paint.

    Double Stick Tape

    Thanks for all the input. I think I'll go with the Double Stick Tape.

    Right on! This is the first thing I "did" to my WS6 when I got it. It had dirt caked in there and I wanted it to look fresh.
