    Front hood/bonnet emblem removal and replacement - Saab 9-5

    Tools needed:

    • hair dryer (optional)
    • screw driver or other flat blade tool

    Parts and supplies needed:

    • Saab front hood emblem part number 12844161
    • Adhesive remover

    Difficulty rating (scale 1 to 5):

    1 - very easy. Anyone with some patience can do this.

    Time estimate: 15 minutes


    Note: these instructions are very similar for the rear trunk or hatch emblem replacement.

    The Saab emblems need to be replaced occasionally because the top part will come off eventually.

    Protect the paint with tape or other material so you won't damage the paint. For best results, do this when the hood/bonnet and emblem are warm so the the adhesive will let go easier. Park the car in the sun for a while or use a hair dryer.

    Be careful when you pry off the emblem, do not use excessive force because you can dent the area around the emblem.

    There will be some of the old adhesive left after the old emblem is off. Make sure to clean everything off before you put on the new emblem. I used Goof Off with good results.

    Take off the protective film of the new emblem and place emblem on the hood. It will self-center in the holes of the hood so it is very easy to do.

    That's it. Your Saab will proudly display SAAB and the Griffin logo again

    I would say if you don't have special products for removing old glue you can use simply petrol lamp liquid on a rag, don't forget to clean up the greasy let in on with rubbing alcohol, when it's dry, do your gluing.
    That's works for any stickers in fact.
