Remove the indicator (gentle pressure in, and twist), then use a plastic credit card, or thin nylon string under the badge edge. Don't use a knife as it damages the badge. Also, you may want to mark the top of the indicator before removing the badge, otherwise you will put them back wonky :)

Anyone know what size these badges are? Where can you get real OEM ones from?

Double sided tape - Halfords number plate tape would work well (not the really thick stuff though!). You can pick up double sided tape from eBay for a few quid...

Yeh I have some double sided tape. Not sure that will hold well enough!

I also happen to have some licence plate fixers but they are about 3mm thick. Might use some hot glue/silicone/hardasnails!

Remember that you may want to replace the badges at some stage :D the tape has held well for me for some time now, so should be fine.

I ended up using some power grip tape from toolstation. Weatherproof and very strong (but should still be able to remove when needed)

Highly recommend this! Used it for my french fries too
