If you are trying to remove the glue from the double sided tape take a blow dryer and heat the glue up a little. It should soften up and you should be able to roll it up in a ball and remove it that way. Similar to rolling up dried rubber cement.

You can also try a claybar to remove the glue.

To remove mine I used a product called "Label and sticker remover" from a hardware store.
Spray a little let it sit for a minute then use dental floss between the emblem and car and cut it off. Spray a rag and wipe up the excess glue.

Afterwards you might want to use some 3M buffing compound to get any left over off. I used the heat gun on my Monte Carlo and then the compound and you couldn't see anything.
