I recently purchased a 2014 ELR. Has anyone removed the ELR letters on the trunk? I would like to do this but wanted to be sure there are no holes under the letters. I think they are glued on but was hoping to hear from someone who may have done this already.

Thanks
Mike

You might have trouble finding people who have done this. Generally lettering is attached with double-sided adhesive tape. Larger things like badges will have posts.

As Dave says, you're going to have trouble finding someone who knows. Why not look under the trunk lid liner ( I assume it's lined, like my 2000 Jetta) and see if there are any fasteners showing?

That would work. Excellent idea.

Any GM dealer will be able to bring up the image for the part and you'll be able to see if there are posts.

Why would you do this? The Cadillac logos in the lights and on the sills would be difficult to remove/change, so 'debadging' is very difficult.

I'm pretty sure they are glue-on, but, checking with a Caddy shop would be a good start.

I took the dealer badge off the back of mine (glue-on) and the paint was obviously faded on the rest of the car. I had to cover the flaw with an American Flag emblem.

It's a stick on piece, as Loboc indicated. My guess is that removing the ELR nameplate might also remove some paint.

Just use some fishing line or dental floss. Once removed use some alcohol or mineral spirits to remove any excess glue.

On my leftover 2014 I got new in March of 2017, it had the usual dealer crap and I removed it. The paint looked faded, you could still see the logo, but after a good cleaning and polish it was flawless.
