It's essential you use a little heat to soften the adhesive. Otherwise, you can do damage to the clearcoat underneath. Use dental floss instead of prying off to prevent the corners of the badge from marring the paint.
Tip: Mask off edges of the badge with blue masking tape before removing to make reinstalling/lining up the new badge easier.
