I recently bought a 2020 BE and also want to debadge it, especially the BE badge in the front grill. How did you remove it? Is it just clipped on?
I removed the cover and air intake. I had just enough room to get my arm behind the grill and break the tabs on the badge. The lettering is 2 pieces and the front pulls away from the back. It will probably break. Then push the back part from the grill.

When I stick my fingers through the grill and feel the back of the badge I think I can feel the tabs, meaning that mine feels like it's only one piece. But I'll follow your steps so as to at least get a better look. Thanks!

I'll take a photo of the emblem. The lettering is a separate piece from the black backing. The black rectangle the letters are sitting on
Looks good! What was your source for the blank grille emblem?

Interesting. I am fine with the BE on the front grill, but do not care for the chrome letters on the tailgate. I am probably going to remove those. I might order the black “H” that is available….

Are the rear emblems glued or are there holes?

What's the best/safest method to remove?

Thanks...

I have not done it yet. Probably just going to remove the Ridgeline and AWD emblems and leave the H in the center. The side ones are glued on, not sure about the H. I use a fishing line and get under the letters, until they are separated from the glue. You might want to use a hair dryer on the emblems prior to using the fishing line, especially if it’s a cold out. I use Goo be Gone to remove the glue.

YouTube has a number of videos that detail the process.

Thanks... Me too, leave the H, but remove the AWD & Ridgeline.

Love to see pics of you do it - or if anyone else has done it...?

I removed awd and ridgeline. Those were glued. I believe the H has holes
