How to Troubleshoot Dodge Neon Emblem Problems
You just turned around the corner and you noticed that something dropped off your Dodge Neon. You alight from your compact car and you see your Dodge Neon emblem on the road. No, you just can't brush it off. You know that your Dodge Neon emblem says a lot about your ride. Besides, who would want to have a damaged or loosely fitted emblem that will ruin the exterior of the car? Certainly not you. Take note of the following tips on how you can easily spot troubles with your car's emblem:
A Dodge Neon emblem can be attached to your automobile in a variety of ways. An adhesive, some screws, or some tabs may hold your car's badge. Although those bound by an adhesive are relatively easier to re-attach, insignias fastened by screws or tabs are easy to re-mount just the same. You would only need to have the right materials, like a screwdriver. For re-attaching a Dodge Neon emblem with an adhesive, don't forget to clean the surface first. Cleaning is also necessary for emblem installation with screws or tabs, which may also require you to go under your car's hood.
You may still have your Dodge Neon emblem safely attached on your compact car's hood or sides, but it may not be recognizable anymore. What use is an emblem then? Among the signs of deterioration that can possibly invade your Dodge Neon emblem are rusting and scratching. As these signs of wear are essentially unavoidable, expect your Dodge Neon emblem to reach the point of irreparable wear. When it reaches this point, it might be better to just replace the badge. You can purchase a Dodge Neon emblem at most car accessories stores, and prices range from $17 to $270. If you want an upgrade, there are also Dodge Neon emblems of different styles and designs to suit your liking.
Due to wear, your Dodge Neon emblem (especially the adhesive-type) may become misaligned over time. For a quick fix, detach the insignia first. Applying heat before you pry off your Dodge Neon emblem should make the job easier. And to make sure you get the right alignment, use some painters' tape. Then, with a new layer of adhesive, stick your emblem according to your markings. Voila! You just had your Dodge Neon emblem realigned that easily.
