Yeah the steering wheel emblem is held by 2 tabs on top and 2 tads on bottom bent over. Pretty much impossible to take off without destroying it. So I just ripped emblem in half and just pulled straight out. It won't hurt the steering wheel. all of the overlays and emblems I bought for it was to shallow so wouldn't fit right. so i used very sharp straight razorblade Not the utility kind, and used that to shave small pieces off the domed structure behind the emblem. It's made of same thing as the airbag cover. Plastic/rubberish.so you can shave it down pretty easy. Go slow and carful not to Nick the airbag cover. What you are trying to do is shollow out the domed part, so more in the middle then smaller towards edges. The very edges don't have to be shaved. I used the emblem with backing not pulled off tape to guide how much to shave the dome.this is how it look after.I sort of have the same question. What was your method with removing the steering wheel emblem? I don't intend to keep the OEM, and I've already started trying to pry it off so it's too late to change my mind haha. Any tips or tricks you can share? That's my last step with replacing all my badges. Right now I'm nervous because I've ripped part of the OEM badge off and see a plastic looking circle backing around the edge of where it was. Did I go too shallow? Any help would be much appreciated as I've been looking everywhere.
