peel them off, then use WD40 to remove the adhesive. you can use WD40 and dental floss to get them off, too. works a little better than just peeling. make sure it's the waxed dental floss, though.

why would you use a heat gun on the stock emblems? theres no adhesive holding the stock H badges to the fit...

for the back look up behind the rear hatch handle on the outside and you'll see 2 tabs sticking in from the outside, break them off and the emblem comes off very easily

the front use a credit card and pry it out, the credit card won't harm the black grill material

I think he was referring to the FIT emblem and not the H emblem. Click the image to open in full size.
