How to Install Kia Logo
Installing new Kia K badges is very easy. Each sticker comes with 3M tape on the back. Pay close attention so that you don't install the emblem upside down.
The front hood and trunk badges are held in place with glue. Warming the badges slightly with an electric heat gun will make removing the Kia badge easier. Do not heat the airbags. Make sure to keep the heat gun on the lowest setting, or you could damage the car paint.
Use residue removal products to remove the leftover adhesive. Goo Gone Cleaner works very well.
To install the Kia K badge on the steering wheel, you will need to remove the stock Kia badge. Use a flat screwdriver to pry off the OEM Kia badge from the steering wheel.
Once the old Kia badge is removed, the new Kia K emblem can be easily installed.
Avoid washing your Kia for at least a day after installing the emblem, and don't allow any water or rain to get to the emblems. The text version is used in the US & international market, and the broken K logo is used in South Korea.
