use...

use dental floss, just get it underneath the emblem and pull up. Takes a few seconds.

Be careful... If the rest of your paint is in good condition, you should be fine. However, the clearcoat is something to worry about. When I removed me hood emblem with dental floss, it left an outline in the clearcoat, as well as good amount of dryed out adhesive foam tape. I was able to get the tape off by soaking it with some Fantastik spray, an picking at it with my fingernail. I then used some polishing compound to smooth out the clearcoat. I guess what I saying is just to know what you're getting into before you pull any emblems. It's not always just as simple as prying them off.

I was lucky. I was able to pull all of my emblems off without any problems only to find that I would be driving around with little holes where the emblems used to be so I put them back in. In my case, they just popped out with out much trouble. The only one that had adhesive on it was the V6 emblem in the rear. I removed that, then cleaded the glue with some orange solution and also removed the LS stickers from the sides. Now if someone who knows anything about the MX6 looks at my car, they'll see that i have a 4 Cyl MX6 rather than the V6.
