...replace the front / rear MG badge

TIP !! Before you replace a delaminating badge, give it  a few coats of clear lacquer, this will seal the badge and prolong the delamination.

The part number for both the front and rear badges is DAB000160, the size of both the front and rear badges is 70mm.

  • Several ways to remove the old badge. I found the following worked well, this should work on both the front and rear badges.
    Using a hair dryer, heat the badge to soften the sticky pad on the back of the badge. Using some fishing line, work it behind the badge as if you were flossing it. You will not be able to get all the way through because of the two pins in the centre. When you've finished flossing, put some tank or gaffer tape around the badge for protection, using a plastic spatula, carefully prise off the badge. With the badge removed, clean off any sticky pad that's been left behind. Fit the new badge, the two pins align the badge, remove the protective covering from the back of the badge and press it firmly in place, remove the tape protection, job done.
