Can the "H" emblem on the motor cover be removed easily. Will the round Genesis steering wheel emblem fit there?
Just looking for options....

To quote a former member, most of us just wear bags over our heads if we have to open the hood and expose a Hyundai logo.

No one seems to want to answer your question so I will tell you what I did. I can't answer the question about the steering wheel emblem .
Removing the H from the engine cover is not real hard but harder than the other emblems on the car. It is glued in to a slight indention and has 2 locating pins going through the engine cover. The pins don't pull out and will break off. I was able to get it up on one side (using a lot of rags to protect the cover) then slip a thin piece of metal under the H to brake of the pins. See the attachment to see the final results.

Thanks! I appreciate your response - it's on there so well that it looks like it's molded in the cover. I'll give it a try wcgw? thanks again

Wow, you opted to replace a decent enough looking Hyundai logo with something that looks like it came from Things Remembered?? Why, so the engine oil change guy sees it? I just don't get that at all.

I'm sorry, I don't remember where the pins are. It was about 2 years ago and at 75 years old I have a hard time remembering my name on a good day.

Why did the chicken cross the road? To be on the other side.
Why do I do something to MY car? Because I want to.

I ended up just replacing the cover
Damn, and I just came across this because I'm wanting to do the exact same thing, but I don't want to replace the cover if I don't have to. How much did that cover cost you?

I think it was $60 on ebay - it has the geneisis emblem and v6 on it
Ahhh, okay. I think we might be talking about 2 different parts. Mine is the air intake cover. That thing is like $300-400. I'm going to mess around with it today and see what I can come up.
