Bumperpad nose. Is it possible to remove the Fiero emblem from the nose, without destroying the emblem (or the nose), without removing the nose itself?
I can't see any way to get to the nut on the back that holds it in place but just wondering if someone has a less than obvious way to remove it.

Using one hand to hold the badge and the other to turn the nut, you can reach up underneath on the aero nose and I also did the same on an 88 coupe nose. Never tried a bumper pad nose, though. If you are very careful, using a socket, you might be able to remove the nut that holds the badge in place. Given the age of the plastic pin on the badge, don't be surprised if it breaks off.

I opened the hood and took the small bolts across the top of the nose out, and pulled up on the nose which gave me enough room to get a wrench in to grip the speed nut. It wasn't easy or fast but I did get it off.

It's been a few years but IIRC it's just one nut holding the emblem on. There is a separate stud off-set center to align the emblem, but nothing attaches on that stud. It just slips through a hole to ensure the emblem is on straight.

I agree with FieroFreak. Ive only ever seen one stamped nut and a guide pin on one. You can reach up from underneath. Small arms and hands are a help. I use extensions and 1/4" rachet.

Fierofool has it right. I did mine that way. One arm up under neath and one to hold the badge. 86 SE.

But the 86SE has an aero nose, not a bumperpad nose. Sounds like the bumperpad nose doesn't have an opening at the bottom.

So far as I can see there's really no access from below to the back of the emblem, there's metal brackets and who knows what in the way so far as I can see/feel. I did wonder about getting at it by removing the top bolts and lifting the rear of the top as johnt671 described so I might try that. I am just trying to prep all the surfaces for paint, probably next spring, so just doing a bit at a time and don't want to start pulling the car apart too much yet.

I dont remember anything different for the aero nose. If you cant reach up from underneath, how about thru the 'grill' opening.

Nope, the 'grill' just goes into the same space.
Not to worry, I'm not in a rush, plenty left on the car to sand down yet (like most of it LOL) before I really need to take the emblem off.

I think I took the black grill under the nose off of my 84 and then it was easy to reach up and change it. The grill only had four screws IIRC.
