Anybody replaced the front jcw badge on their car? Straight forward job? Mine looks fairly battle scarred!

I'm pretty sure it's fixed from behind with small nuts if I remember correctly.
Should be a simple job, but you can 'bet your bottom dollar' that the nuts
would have seized due to corrosion!

Yes its a two nut job......but not sure if you can reach the back of the badge withour removing the bumper. Maybe you can reach it if you can remove some of the undertray?

Unless anyone found a crafty way that I've missed its a full bumper off job If under warranty it's covered

I got mine done under warranty and I know that the LCI jcw bumper splits around the lower grille so that's worth looking into avoiding taking the bumper off

image.jpgJCW badge replaced, I removed the upper grill to gain access to the badge. Only took 30mins and most of the skin on my knuckles! Still better than taking the bumper off though.

I moved my JCW badge to the upper bonnet grill.
A little less likely to get stone chips being a bit higher and a damn sight
easier to remove should the badge start looking untidy.

If you've got small hands it's no problem, otherwise it's tight . Have fun
