Default Quick Wagon Debadge Question

I searched a ton for this and couldnt find anything

I've got an 07 2.5i wagon and I'm going to debadge it but i dont know if i can take off the star emblem as well.

I've read that the sedans have holes but i dont know for sure if the wagons do. I'm thinking most likely so.

Just wanna quick answer for certain, then you can let the thread die.

I've tried this on my 06 wagon and it does have holes behind the emblem. I actually don't mind the center emblem, I just removed the rest of them.

heat it up with a hair dryer
then take dental floss or fishing line (fishing line would be better i used the dental floss and it kept ripping on me)
Then the hardest part, i tried to get that gunk left behind off with "goo-gone" like everyone says, it was a real bitch to get off took me a while
Tried to use a dremel buffer... wouldnt recommend it.. not that it did anything bad just, pass on it.
Then use some mother's scratch remover or compound and rub it over the areas and it looks like nothing was ever there... unless you get super close to it otherwise no one can tell.

EDIT: also you might wanna get a claybar if you can. i didnt try that but it probably would have helped me out

Good advice. As per the sticky ****, I usually just grab some mineral spirits, put it on a rag and hold it over top of the sticky stuff for a min or so to let it absorb, then try to rub it off. Also, if you have a friend that works at a body shop, ask him to bring home the eraser wheel. thats by far the easiest way.
