The emblem in the middle of my grill (the square VOLVO symbol) appears to have condensation under it. Is it possible to take off the plastic cover, wipe it clean and adhere it back on? I figured I'd ask the experts before I go ripping it off.

Here's an incredibly poor quality night picture of it. I'll take a picture during the day if anyone is really itching to see.

hard to see in that crappy pic as mentioend but if it's the actual badge that has condensation you'll be springing for a new one.

I have the same problem, but mine's pooled some dirty water inside it and partially obscured the lower half. We get a lot of rain down here.

I'd love to pull it and clean it too but couldn't figure out how the last time I had the sash out.

Even if you get the condensation out, looks like the blue started to run and the letters has been effected.

Spring for a used one, a lot of us have aftermarket grills, or go to a salvage yard and just grab up the slash. Since its ruined anyways, might as well hack at it, pry it apart from the lens and chrome ring with a bone tool/knife, maybe print out your own Volvo Logo and colors you want and seal it up again tightly.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll head to my local junkyard this week. Anyone know if the grill emblem the same size every year? My grandma's 07 2.5T's looks a little bigger, but it could just be my eyes playing tricks on me.

Unsure, but I bet the 2004 thru 07 S60/V70/XC70 are the same.
