Hello,
Does anyone know how to remove the bowtie from the trunk? Are there holes underneath or is it just stuck on with adhesive? Thanks for your help!

More than likely it is stuck on with adhesive. What I used on my previous cars was a hair dryer to heat up the adhesive and it should come up. Just be patient and careful. Starting with one side and care fully pulling back from onside.

Hopefully there isn't an actual hole in the metal to assist in alignment when the bowtie is factory installed. I've seen that on some cars.

I'm fairly confident there are alignment holes on the Cruze as well.

Back in the day that was definitely something they did - these days, they use a large fixture that positions the badge(s) correctly based off nearby geometry features. So thankfully no need for holes anymore.

Fishing line can also be used to remove adhesive backed emblems. Slide the line behind an edge of the emblem and work line back and forth in a cutting motion to separate the emblem from the car. Clean up with Isopropyl Alcohol.. :)

Can I safely assume that a 2016 model is the same?---no alignment holes?
I just don't want to find out when it's too late like I did on my 2012 (ended up buying a new badge for that one)
