So I'll been dying to debadge the mazda3 and skyactiv logos from the hatch, but I'm not sure if there are pins. I obviously don't want exposed holes on my car, so does anyone know or can confirm if the new logos use pins? Is it safe to debadge?

THANKS!

Just got inside from De-Badging my '13 HB, obviously the question has been answered but I found out the hard way after I had removed the "Mazda" badge there are 3 holes, but the good news is if you pop it out it should pop right back in. My question is do we know of a way to fill in the holes without major body work? For example maybe a rubber plug that someone may have stumbled upon?

A picture is worth 1000 words.



I'm not putting the Mazda back on, as I actually have plans for a custom badge that was on my Miata. I have to finish prep/painting the badge, so for now it looks like this

I've got a quick question for you, do those holes have a bottom to them? or do they go all the way through the metal?

I was thinking about filling the holes, not sure though.

PS, anyone know if there is a hole behind the "3" next to the word "mazda"
I saw a few posts saying that there was no hole behind it, but no picture of it. Thanks!!

cool thanks!

Anyone know for sure if the "3" symbol has holes behind it or not?

I literally just took my "skyactiv" symbol off.

Here are a bunch of pics from my 2014 Mazda 3 s Touring Hatch:















Cleaned off VERY easy with no sticky residue at all, I think the ring was just dirt.



I would have washed my car but it was raining all day...



hope this was helpful!! removing it was easy...

Thanks to this thread, I just debadged my sedan. I like the look a lot better. I'm a little sad people behind me will no longer know what kind of Mazda it is, but that's ok :p

I wanted to take off the "Mazda3" and "Skyactiv" emblems on the back but being left with holes discouraged me. So I did something very miniscule to appease my need for a debadge. I took off the "3" right after the "Mazda" emblem. LOL not much but it helps.

The trunk would look so much cleaner without the emblems though, no doubt.
There's no holes behind the skyactive badge.

If you have the sedan, there's no holes behind the mazda badge either

Got my car one week ago today. Last Sunday, I removed the dealer badge. Today I removed the emblems. Looking at replacing the logos with the Evil M's.
