the heat gun will do fine so will a hair dryer ( although not near as easy) and goo gone or WD 40 will do the trick..unless they are painted on like mine are

If they are painted on top of the clear coat, you can probably sand them off with fine sand paper, then buff the shine back, but you'd have to be real careful not to sand into the clearcoat.
