How do you remove the rear 'H' on 2013 fit?

I have a 2013 fit, can I modify the rear 'H'? Can it be removed?

Found a thread detailing how to remove the front 'H' so I can paint black but can't find anything for the rear. I would like them to match once I modify the front.

The correct way is to open the panel behind the rear hatch door,
and take out the clip that hold the rear H emblem.

You might need to take out the rear black garnish (and rear wiper) too,

I will have to do this after my rear JDM H emblem (that I had ordered since February arrive), unfortunately my rear JDM H emblem (and the front too),
had not arrived, yet,
otherwise I could do a DIY for you...

but I had done some preliminary study on this,
and as I had said above, the correct way is to open the panel behind the rear hatch door and see what you need to do after that.

but of course there might be some easier way (hack way),
like prying out the emblem out and just force it until the tab is broken...

Have Fun with your modification

I figured it wouldn't be that easy. I don't want to pry and break anything. I could use more specifics on removing the panel.

Thanks

Hello,
There is a thread where you can find the link to download the entire GE service manual in some strange HTML format that can only be opened by Internet Explorer only (no firefox/google chrome).

I am sure you will find the information on how to open the rear hatch door panel there.

here is the link:
http://www.fitfreak.net/forums/2nd-g...ml#post1169076

I have downloaded and use this service manual, it contain illustration (pictures too), it is an official Honda service manual.
The problem is, the format and the illustration is not easy to be copy and paste here, so I can not post it here.

but if you have downloaded the manual,
just write a search in that manual under the keyword:
"Interior Trim Removal/Installation - Tailgate Areas"

and you will find a complete step by step way (with clear pictures/illustration) on how to open the rear panel

Have Fun with your modification

You can also use a long screwdriver and break them from under the door handle, assuming that applies to the last gen fits too, its still breaking it, just classier

You have to remove the rear interior panel of the hatch to access the single 10mm bolt that secures the exterior panel to the hatch. Now rear the rear wiper arm. Then you have to attempt to remove the exterior panel so you have access the metal clips that hold the rear emblem on. You will break multiple plastic clips that hold on the interior and exterior panels, just fti

You could just mask around the emblem and spray them with Plasti Dip.
