all you have to do is slide a real thin flathead or something similar to it under the emblem and start to push the emblem upwards. work slowly around the emblem and be sure not to scratch the paint. I wrapped my Flathead with a thin cloth so it wont harm the paint.. The emblem will start to come up and it will pop out. Same for the trunk also.

Screw that (anything with a screwdriver and paint), get some fishing line (monofilament line) and run it under and through the other sider of the emblem

I wouldn't have known unless I found out the hard way, but then again I used a really thin rag
