Also, should anything else be done to keep water from getting behind the emblem?
Once you get the emblems off, be very careful to get every speck of the old adhesive cleaned off the emblems and the car. Clean the backs of the emblems to make sure there's no paint or old adhesive.
Then, get the 3M tape that best fills up the back of the emblems. Clean the backs of the emblems with rubbing alcohol, blow-dry the backs with a hair dryer and apply the tape with firm pressure. Clean the emblem area on the car with the alcohol, and blow it try. Get it good and warm, them press the emblems on as firm as you can.
If you get the 3M tape applied well and firmly, those emblems should NEVER come off. Water, dirt, snow, no matter.
