Looking to replace the push buttons on my 1950 Chevy 3100 radio but having trouble removing old ones, any tips on getting them off? Thanks.

I used to use a large set of cutters or pliers and break bits off. Now I use a heat gun. I heat the plastic up until it get gummy and then remove it with pliers. I pull each one out in the setting position, one at a time while I remove them. I soak the new button in hot water before installing them.
