Default Rear emblem and replacement key

I purchased the OptimaK5 emblem replacement kit for my 2015 K900. The front emblem came off without an issue, but the rear (trunk) emblem won't budge. Is it bolted on?

I just bought the K900. It came with only one key (which works intermittently). Has anyone else experienced this? Is there an inexpensive way to get another key?

Thank you!

warm emblem with hair dryer, not super hot, just good and warm so not comfortable to put hand on it.
Let the heat soak thru so sticky on double face tape softens.
Then use dental floss to saw back and forth under emblem. I had to do a little from top, then from bottom,
and sides before I could get it pulled off. Some emblems have two small post for alignment and some don't.
If yours does you have to work around them as close to the posts as you can.
They are not bolted on.

I agree that the front emblem was a lot easier to remove, compared to the rear one. Part of the problem is that the rear one is kind of indented in to the trunk lid which makes it even more difficult to slide the fishing line in there. I probably busted about 5 pieces of fishing line before I finally got around those crazy posts properly. But keep at it, it will come off eventually.
