Has anyone attempted to debadge their new van yet?

Specifically I am trying to determine how the "H" and the "ODYSSEY" emblems are attached on the tailgate... studs or glue?

I don't want to start trying to pry them off only to be left with gaping through holes in the sheet metal.

Only badge I am aware of is the H on the rear tail. It was stolen off our 06' and there were no holes. I would hope Honda would keep this as the H badge is high on the theft list. Debadging is a preventative measure to theft I guess.

Ok, if I'm interpreting this drawing and parts list correctly it looks like the "H" is indeed secured with two through-hole clips while the "ODYSSEY" and "TOURING" badges are just glued on.

I'm going to try and remove the ODYSSEY badge tonight...
Wish me luck :)

The chrome plate garnish doesnt go with the flow either. It needs the red/clear Touring plate garnish to complete the look.

If the H isn't there, someone might think you are driving a new Grand Cherokee or Durango...

H-badge has tabs, the Odyssey badge was the most difficult I had ever taken off, don't know why... heated it, fish wired it, total mess.

Funny, because the old Touring 05-10 had the fake chrome plate to signify it was a touring, now they do it the reverse way on the 2011..

The H on the back is attached with adhesive tape just like the Odyssey and Touring badges. The other badges use adhesive tape, not glue.

The H has 2 clips that insert into plastic grommets. They take about 30 seconds to pull off. Very easy if you have the right tools.

So is there holes in the tailgate for the "H"?
I'm confused about the location and purpose of these clips. Are they in addition to the adhesive tape?

Bumping an old thread but I just went out to assess pulling the Ody badge off the rear of my new 2012. I pulled on the corner and to my surprise, I was able to simply pull off the whole badge, no heat, no floss, nothing. It came off completely clean without leaving a trace of adhesive! I have debadged a number of vehicles and this was BY FAR the simplest.

I was a bit concerned to even try after reading a couple of the posts above. Easy peasy though!

That's in Pennsylvania! Panic and Desire always crack me up.

I never thought about the H being stolen a lot. We used to have a Volkswagen that had the badge stolen off it. We replaced it, it was stolen again, we gave up.
