    hair drier? hot water?
    anything to heat it up, then something like an old credit card of cheese wire.

    AG bug and tar remover for excess glue

    Just done mine I used hot water from the kettle

    Then I used dental floss to remove the badge it came off very easy.

    Then more hot water poured over the black bit and peeled most of it off by hand . As freshprince said tar/bug remover for the rest it took about 10mins
