Hood Emblem Fell Off

The hood emblem on my car either fell off, or was stolen.

I have a replacement from the dealer, but it has 2 plastic tabs on the back, and no corresponding hole on the hood.
Should I cut off the tabs and glue it back on? What kind of glue?

Looks like the emblem didn't come all the way off. Use a credit card or a screwdriver and a rag to gently pry up on the emblem.

Use a plastic pry bar to remove the piece stuck to the hood. Or very carefully use a screwdriver. It pops off.

Then push the new one on. Most enthusiasts bribe a fat chick in a bikini with doughnuts to sit on the new emblem to make sure it's firmly in place. Also, it's good luck.

Thank you both. Pretty sure it took longer to write this post than it did to pop off that silver part. Worked like a charm
