    Hi all just looking for a big of help on this one has anybody any info on how to replace H badge on front grille with a red EP3 one can it be taken out without being broken in case I want to put original back on . I have the following picture is it just a case of getting some dental floss and separating the original or does the whole grille need to come out any help is would be greatly appreciated thanks image.

    Just remember the EP3 red badges have a adhesive backing, On the stock chrome H item 8 push pins grip like crazy you can snap the legs off the push pin and then slide then off.. but that hard as the legs from the emblem are brittle.

    Is there anything I can do from down behind the grille to push it out for example .. So the stock H has two pins and it's held on by to the grille by inserting them into the push pins .. Would I be right in saying
    That ? Is there a chance if it goes gone that I might have to replace whole grille ? Thanks too for the reply

    Yup the stock one are soley held by those push pins.The push pin expand outwards when inserted and they grip.. you will find it hard to remove honestly. if you don't want to use the stock emblem again the easiest way is to break the chrome leg off.

    You can still reuse the grill if you remove the emblem using the above method

    A thin flat head screw driver to separate the silver honda badge careful not to snap and it should remove along with the 2 pins aswell then the new red honda badge will fit perfect in job done

    Think its a little on the small side tbh which was why I was thinking of changing.. Don't have the part number off by hand bud, is that the DC5 rear H part number? When I did ordered mine in honda I just asked can I have the 2005 CTR front and badge H badges
