    Not hard, but a bit awkward, the badge has 3 prongs on the back that go into 3 holes in the boot. You have to remove a bit of the boot trim that's near the badge, then push the prongs from inside the boot, then remove the badge, you will probably break the badge (I did) but as your replacing it , it doesn't really matter, then gently push the new badge into the holes until flush. Make sure you get the correct badge for the c207 as it has the correct curve for the boot.
    Hope all that makes sense. :D

    Actually, John, i was lucky i
    got it of eBay of a chap who only had it on his car a month, it is like new, was only £60
    You can get them from various places but there usually between £150 and £200.

    Thanks for coming back. I’m struggling to find parts at the moment but as I only put deposit on this yesterday I haven’t had a proper look!

    They were the ones that told me to go cabrio and not coupe although I suspect leg room similar anyway
