Are there any suggestions for removing a dealer logo plaque from a painted surface? The plaque appears to be a thick plastic "sticker" and is apparently attached to the car by adhesive and there are no screws. The sticker/plaque is located over a flat, painted surface. See photo.

Is this a DIY or should I call a body shop?

Any information, past-experience that you could share and allow us to benefit from, would be greatly appreciated.

Take dental floss and run in behind the dealer logo tag and pull down through the double sided tape that holds the tag onto your car. This usually will work. It might work better if you heat the tag up with a hair drier first to soften the adhesive.

You will have some redidual adhesive left on paint, but you can usually get that off with cleaner. Don't use any cleaner that will damage your paint.

Whenever I buy a car I specify:

No dealer identification of any sort, ie. license plate frame and/or sticker on the trunk lid.

As mentionned above if it is a badge like the designation hair dry and dental floss should do it.
