Mustang Emblem

Can any of you tell me how the Mustang emblem is attached to the rear deck lid?
And how to get it off without messing it up? (the emblem or the deck lid)

Thanks

Re:Mustang Emblem

it has pins and slides into barrel clips. are you planning on reusing it? if you are not just take some good locking pliers and gently pull it off . or you can gently pry behind it to get it off . justin

Re:Mustang Emblem

It is mounted with little "barrel nuts" I think they are called. You slip the barrel nuts onto the chrome pegs and when you put the pegs into the openings the barrel nut expands. I was told to take mine off by just carefully prying it off with a screw driver (careful with the paint). Of course, I was terrified of cracking the fiberglass - but I did it and it just popped right off. The new one comes with the barrel nuts which you slip onto the peg and it all just snaps into place.

Re:Mustang Emblem

If you pull it straight out--it will be OK. Wrap a screwdriver with a cloth or something, to not scratch the paint.

You have to be careful not to pull those barrell nuts out, only because they are set into fiberglass--not sheet metal, and if you enlarge the hole, you might have problems.

This is something to be real careful repairing.

BTW--the placement of this enblem is another thing to look for--since the clones usually don't have it in the right place--or it's missing.

Re:Mustang Emblem

wrap the end of a screwdriver in electrical tape before prying.

Re:Mustang Emblem

To Paul's point about the holes maybe becoming a little too big - I had this problem and a little tid bit that worked for me was that I could "wrap" a barrel nut around one already on the post (using some needle nose pliers), making it thicker on the post. Worked like a charm and filled the bigger holes nice and snug. Casey
