Yes, you do have to remove the whole bumper cover to get the emblem replaced. It's not that hard, I did it, not long to take off and back on.

Removing the bumper cover is necessary. To do so, you've got to remove the turn signal lamps (there's a screw behind each one), unbolt the valance panel (either from the car or from the bumper cover), and remove the bolts holding the bumper to the inner fender.

if you need an emblem I think I still have a 97 emblem in good shape.
