I've read a hair dryer and floss but have never tried it.

1) heat gun or hair dryer...not to close to destroy the clearcoat or paint. I love my heat gun..multiple temp settings and a cooling option

I used my hand to see of it was getting to hot. Quick sweeps back and forth.

2) fishing line...dental floss breaks easy. I heated mine up and simply peeled the badging off.

3) continue to heat residue on car and you should be able to use your fingers to "roll up" the rest of the glue off the surface

4) goo gone and a microfiber towel for remaining crap

5) isopropyl alcohol and water in a 50/50 mixture to get rid of goo gone chemical residue.

If your vehicle is new it will be much easier than if older
