Bonnet badge size

Recommended Posts

What's the size of the bonnet badge on an E60?

Mines scabby so am.gonna change but seen different sizes advertised.

Also, do they just pop off and clip in?

Correct.  82 front and 74 rear.  Removing may depend on what way they were fitted.  Place an old credit card or similar underneath and lever up to see if the badge moves easily.  If not there may be double sided tape as well as the two fitment pins.  Leave the credit card in place and use a fine flat screwdriver or similar and gently prise upwards by turning left and right , a little at a time, moving round as you do this. Do it patiently and gently to avoid body damage.   Another method used is by slipping that very fine, half inch plastic packaging tape underneath and again gently pulling the badge off.   By the way, many of the badges on ebay, while excellent reproductions need a little bit taken off the retaining pins as they are just a little longer than the originals.

Sorry, can't help with this.  but simply use good double sided tape if unsuccessful,  making sure to cover the holes as well.

 

 

cheers, It might come to that.

Jake is correct. I had a touch of brain fade there with this heat.   82 For both front and rear on the E60/61, which you would think I should have know after ordering the wrong set last year!
