Hey hey,

Just did a quick google search and this came up. It's pretty clear on how to remove and replace the roundel.

It looks as though they do use a plastic tool with a microfibre cloth underneath to avoid scratching the paint. The tool looks like it comes from an interior trim tool set. I'm sure it could be done carefully with a cloth and a screwdriver if you don't have or don't want to buy the tool.

Good luck.
