Over the years, the emblems on the car can take a beating due to the elements. Replacing them can significantly improve the appearance of your car.

The rear scripts on the A6 are attached to the car with an adhesive backing. Use a tape measure or ruler to mark the location of the existing script before removing it from the rear hatch. It is also helpful to use masking tape to accurately locate the script.

I like to use a heat gun on the rear script to soften up the adhesive. Be careful not to leave the heat gun pointed in one spot for too long as you can damage the paint. Keep it moving until you can take a bit of dental floss and cut through the adhesive backing. Once the script is removed, use some alcohol to clean off the remaining adhesive. Installing the new script is as simple as peeling the backing off the script and sticking it on the bodywork.

The rear script on the C5 A6 is attached to the car with an adhesive backing. I like to use a heat gun to soften up the adhesive. This makes it much easier to remove. Don't leave the heat gun pointed at a single spot for too long, as you can damage the paintwork.

It is helpful to mark the location of the emblems prior to removing them. I like to tape around the area with a few reference marks to help when pressing on the new emblem.

The rear scripts are held on with adhesive.

The rear scripts are held on with adhesive. Heat the area around the script until you can cut through the adhesive with dental floss as shown here. Use alcohol to clean up any residual adhesive left on the car. Apply the new emblems once the area is clean. Most are peel and stick type installation.
