    IMO you need to remove the emblem first and put 3M outdoor double sided tape on it and then re-install. Here is how I did mine:
    1) Wax the area around the emblem- 5-6 inches around it.
    2)Use painters tape and tape around the emblem at least 5-6 inches around it.
    3) Take a hair dryer and heat up the emblem-not too hot though-just hot enough so the emblem starts to move a little when you pull on it.
    4) take fishing line-about a 2 ft peice and pull it behind the emblem until the emblem is removed-if it wont work continue heating the emblem.
    5) Use wd/40 and a soft cloth to remove the sticky residue from where the emblem was. Its best to let the wd/40 soak in for a few minutes.
    6) wash the area you just cleaned with wd/40
    7) put new 3m double sided trim tape on the back of the emblem once you remove the old tape/sticky shit.
    8) install the emblem-then pull off the painters tape. *note-the painters tape not only protects the area around the emblem from excess heat from the blowdryer it also acts as a template so you know exactly where to put the emblem back on the car. Waxing the area before putting the tape on ensures no issues when removing the tape.
