The boot badges are stuck on - depending on how old your car is and how dirty it has got then it may leave a distinctive 'focus' and 'ST' shadow. I took the 'focus' lettering off and it left a slight shadow of where the muck had gradually stained the paint work. It is very slight but I just used grease cleaner to get most of it off then gently T-cut it. After a week or so it had gone.

As for the wing badges, once removed there is a hole where the indicator is on other models but I have seen someone on here had took them off, filled in the gap then had that wing re-sprayed so its not simple.

Hope that helps.

P.S. To remove the lettering use a hair dryer to soften the glue behind the lettering and then VERY CAREFULLY prise them off and dont use anything other than your fingers.

I removed the Focus lettering from the boot of mine using some dental floss (
). I simply put the floss down behind each letter and used a sort of 'sawing' action to get each one off. They came off easy enough with no hair dryer in sight. I then used some 'Bug and Tar Remover' spray and it got rid of all the sticky residue. I can't tell that the Focus was ever there now.

I've also removed the wing badges but I did repalce them with some other badges. Here is a link to my topic which shows what is left behind when you take the wing badges off a pre-facelift

Hope this helps

Did pretty much the same myself only I used fishing line and it worked very well.

If you're going to take Gav's light hearted comment to task, then at least write in English...

To the OP - not sure about the wing badges but using dental floss for the rear as per Donna's post is the way to go.

Oh dear


Gav wasnt referring to your post anyway, as he clearly stated, he was referring to the thread title. Get a grip fella, the world isnt against you.
