    No it wont, and its a great solvent for glue... just make sure you put some wax on the area afterwards.

    1. Use a hairdryer to heat the badge.
    2. Use a flat plastic credit/cash/points card to prise off, slowly !!
    3. Clear up the residue with Detailers clay/quick detailer and/or Autogylm Instant Tar Remover.

    I used fishing line to remove my badges, literally cuts through the adhesive.

    tried a whole kettle of water

    Supposed to concentrate the hot contents of the kettle on the badge
    Looks good, think it's convinced me to do mine.
